Law firm Dougherty Quinn raised £1,165 for The Children’s Centre by supporting a ‘Make a Will’ initiative last year. It was the eighth year in succession that Dougherty Quinn’s legal experts gave up their professional time to write simple wills for free in exchange for participants making a set donation to The Children’s Centre. Since 2006 the scheme has raised more than £8,000 to fund charitable projects for children and families across the Island.
Juana Warburton, Development Manager at The Children’s Centre, said:
“We are extremely grateful for the continued support of Dougherty Quinn for the Make a Will scheme which over the years has proved to be a hugely successful fundraising initiative. It is only possible due to the expertise and generosity of Dougherty Quinn staff and those who come forward to take part in the scheme and take this opportunity to make a Will. Seven people came forward to take part in the 2013 scheme and we greatly appreciate their support too.”
Annemarie Hughes, Director and Head of Private Client at Dougherty Quinn, said:
“Dougherty Quinn is delighted to continue to support The Children’s Centre. The Make a Will scheme benefits not only The Children’s Centre, but also provides each participant with peace of mind that their estate will be dealt with, and their family provided for, in accordance with their wishes. Our firm is committed to the provision of the highest quality professional legal advice, and continues to work hard to deliver our clients the best service possible. This initiative is not only a great way to support a fantastic local charity such as The Children’s Centre, but also serves as a useful reminder of the benefits of having a Will in place, and we are pleased that it has once again proved such a success.”
