Will Aid 2019 – top donating firm in the South West!

Share Me:

During Will Aid 2019, we raised a grand total of £9,680.00, beating our previous best of £6,940.00 in 2018.

For 2019, not only were we the top donating firm in the South West, but we were also the 7th highest donating firm in the entire UK (out of a total of 497 firms).  In 2019, Will Aid raised over £700,000 for the charities listed below.

Will Aid runs for the month of November each year.  Scott Richards have supported Will Aid for many years.  It is the UK’s top charity Will-writing scheme.  It offers everyone the opportunity to make or update their Will in return for a donation to help people in need in the UK and all over the world.  As part of the annual Will Aid campaign, we draw up basic Wills for local people without charging our usual fee.  In return for this service, the clients make a donation to Will Aid.  Please contact us if you would like to make a Will during Will Aid month.

During the time that Scott Richards have supported Will Aid in this way (including 2018), the generous contributions of local people have raised a grand total of over £41,000.00 for Will Aid.  

The money raised is shared by nine well-known UK charities: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCIAF (Scotland), Sightsavers, and Trocaire (Northern Ireland). 

We are proud that Scott Richards have been involved in this way.  The money that has been raised will make a real and lasting difference to the vulnerable children, families and older people with whom the Will Aid charities work.
