Staff at Cooper Sons Hartley and Williams in Buxton have handed over a cheque worth £3,270 to Blythe House Hospicecare.

The Terrace Road firm hosted a Wills Month throughout June, providing a will writing service in return for fees being donated to the hospice.

As well as supporting Wills Month, Debbie Hall and Erica Bassett, who are both partners at the firm, regularly attend the hospice’s monthly coffee mornings to meet and chat to members of the public, offering advice and guidance on legal issues.

The firm’s support does not stop there though… another solicitor also took part in the hospice’s first-ever Glow Twilight Walk last month, and a member of the staff regularly volunteers their time for Blythe House.

Katie Holt, Fundraising and Communications Assistant at Blythe House commented: ‘The amount raised by Cooper Sons Hartley and Williams is truly amazing and is our best fundraising amount from one solicitor in a Wills Month.

‘We are so grateful to the firm; everyone who got their wills written or amended during the month, and for the team’s ongoing support in helping to raise vital funds for the hospice. All the money raised will go towards ensuring that care and services remain free to access for local people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.’

Andrew Cullimore, Senior Partner at Cooper Sons Hartley and Williams, said: ‘We are more than happy to help raise funds for Blythe House to enable them to offer members of our local community access to their much-valued services.’
