Loosemores has been recognised by Cancer Research UK after facilitating over £440,000 worth of gifts from people choosing to leave a legacy to the charity in their will.
Loosemores was presented with a bronze certificate to acknowledge the firm’s ongoing support. The firm has been offering the Free Will Service to people aged 55 and over in Cardiff for the past 20 years, giving guidance and support for those wishing to write a will for the first time or update an existing will.
Maria Cosslett, Partner and Head of Probate, Wills and Trusts at Loosemores commented:
“We are so pleased to have helped raise such a considerable amount over the years. The Free Will Service is a fantastic scheme and we hope to continue working with Cancer Research in raising vital funds.”
Clare Moore, Director of Legacies at Cancer Research UK, noted:
“It’s quite astonishing to think that by simply combining enthusiasm with the highest professional standards Loosemores has helped secure over £440,000 worth of legacy gifts, which will go a long way towards helping our scientists, doctors and nurses to beat cancer sooner.”
A legacy gift can be anything someone wishes to leave in their will. Traditionally this is money, but it could be anything that has a monetary value like an estate or specific item.
The Free Will Service has been running successfully for over 20 years across a network of solicitors in the UK. Anyone who wishes to use the service is asked to consider leaving a legacy gift to Cancer Research UK but is under no obligation to do so.
