£18,874 Raised For Macmillan Cancer Centre

We would like to thank all of our clients who made their will with us as part of our free will writing initiative during September and October 2016.

A total of £18,874 was raised during the two month promotion, all of which will go towards Macmillan’s appeal to raise £2.5 million to help build the NGS Macmillan Unit Appeal, at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

To support the appeal, BRM offered to write clients’ wills for free during the two months and waived their fees, encouraging clients to make a cash donation of £54 for a single will and £108 for a double will to Macmillan for the service. The scheme has run for two years and has so far raised a total of £28,616 for the Macmillan Appeal.

Rob Woodhead, Head of Wills and Probate at BRM Solicitors said:

“The campaign has been a huge success, giving people the opportunity to make a will who otherwise may not have done so, whilst at the same time raising awareness of the Cancer Centre Appeal. Many clients chose to donate more than the suggested £54, showing their support for Macmillan’s vital work and the legal service we provided. The money raised will help to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.”

The firm will continue to run the scheme alongside Macmillan Cancer Support in September and October, for the next two years. Rob Turner, the local fundraising manager at Macmillan says:

“Thank you to everyone who took up BRM Solicitors offer and made a generous donation to Macmillan. Whether you choose to donate now, in your will, or both, your support is vital in helping Macmillan be there to support more people in Chesterfield who are affected by cancer.”
