Thorntons launches Charity Wills campaign to support local children

Scottish law firm LEADING Thorntons has pledged its support for Cash for Kids by announcing the return of its popular Charity Wills campaign.

Taking place in its offices in Fife, Dundee, Perth, Angus and Edinburgh, Thorntons will not charge a fee for wills made throughout September. Instead, the company is asking customers to make a matching donation to Cash for Kids.

Over £550,000 has been raised for Cash for Kids through the initiative since its launch 26 years ago – with hopes the 2022 total will set a new record for the business.

Last year’s campaign donations enabled Cash for Kids to support 2,982 families with basic necessities like supermarket vouchers and clothing, with the aim of making a difference in the lives of young people, by directly supporting families who often have nowhere to go for help.

Victoria Hendry, head of the Cash for Kids charity at Radio Forth, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Thorntons again during their Charity Wills Month in September.”

“To say this campaign has been a success over the years would be an understatement. Thanks to the innovation, commitment and hard work of Thorntons, this campaign grows stronger and supports more local children year after year.

“We are so thrilled to be the recipients of this wonderful campaign and cannot thank Thorntons employees and their customers enough for their support. We have successfully helped thousands of local children live happier, fuller lives through Thorntons Charity Wills Month.

“If you are looking for a will or updating your current will, look no further than contacting Thorntons and in return you will be supporting local children right on your doorstep.”

Murray Etherington, Partner and Head of Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning at Thorntons, said: “By participating in our Charity Wills campaign in September, you will not only be protecting your future, but you will also be supporting some of the most vulnerable children. most vulnerable and disadvantaged. in your region.

“As the cost of living crisis deepens across the country, the work Cash for Kids is doing to provide families with basic necessities such as food, toiletries and clothing has never been so important and we are proud to support them once again this year.”

“Many people assume they don’t need a will, or fear it’s an expensive or morbid process. However, if you own property, have savings, are responsible for children or other dependents, you should have one in place to protect your wishes and reduce stress and costs for your family when it comes to life. is about your business.
