Thomson Snell & Passmore today announces their commitment to participate in this year’s Will Aid campaign, which involves drawing up wills in return for charitable donations.
Led by Private Client partner Stuart Goodbody, Thomson Snell & Passmore has been involved in Will Aid since 1996.This year, the participating lawyers apart from Stuart are Jeremy Passmore, Martin Terrell, Mark Politz, Joanna Dunlop, Mary Robinson and Amy Paxton.
Thomson Snell & Passmore has so far raised more than £15,000 for the Will Aid charities, taking account of Gift Aid tax relief.
Will Aid was established in 1988 and is now run by nine of the UK’s best known charities; ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Age UK, NSPCC, Save the Children UK, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland). The campaign has raised more than £8 million in donations since it was founded, which the Will Aid charities have used to pay for vital work tackling poverty and deprivation across the world.
Thomson Snell & Passmore Senior Partner James Partridge commented:
“We are delighted to be taking part in Will Aid 2011 and supporting the activities of these worthwhile charities. It is excellent that the firm’s expertise can be utilised in a way which benefits both local residents and charities across the UK and worldwide."
“As a firm we are committed to supporting both local individuals and charities and encourage our staff to actively become involved in initiatives such as Will Aid. We hope to continue contributing to Will Aid and other charity initiatives in the future.”
