Fundraising for St Giles Hospice
Rutherfords LLP has been raising funds for St Giles Hospice as part of the “Make your Will Fortnight” between Monday 1st to Friday 12th October.
The firm has raised £1,800 for the local hospice.
Rutherfords LLP waived their standard fees for preparing a will in return for a donation to St Giles.
St Giles Hospice is a registered charity providing individually-tailored care for patients living with cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, multiple sclerosis and other serious illnesses. The dedicated team at St Giles provides specialist care free of charge either at the hospice or at home.
It costs St Giles Hospice £9 million to deliver the care services each year, and although one third of the running costs are provided by the NHS, the remainder is from donations and fund-raising initiatives.
Partner Tony Illsley at Rutherfords LLP said “We understand the importance of raising funds for this local hospice by encouraging clients to make a donation or leaving a legacy in their will. This is an ideal opportunity to receive expert advice to ensure that your affairs are in order by making a new will. Rutherfords LLP are delighted to again be appointed to the panel of solicitors to raise funds for St Giles”.
