Lawyers from south coast firm Churchers Solicitors met the Princess Royal at a reception marking another successful fundraising campaign for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
Managing Partner Ian Robinson, alongside Partner Lauren McIntosh and Partner John Cregan joined supporters of the charity at the reception at Trinity House in London.
The Churchers Solicitors team raised more than £5,000 out of the almost £7,000 total for the charity by waiving fees for the creation of standard wills during Make A Will fortnight in May and June 2017. Clients were asked to make a donation to the charity instead.
Alongside two other firms, Churchers Solicitors helped generate 60 appointments and 51 donations from individuals and couples, raising an overall total of almost £7,000 for the charity which helps support sailors, marines, and their families.
Lauren, said: “Being a community-based firm in an area where the military plays such an important role, this is a cause which we view as incredibly worthwhile. As a firm, we offer discounts to military personnel and we were very pleased to support them further with this scheme.”
She added: “We are extremely pleased to have been able to fundraise so successfully for this valuable cause while helping give individuals the peace of mind that their affairs have been arranged.”
The reception at Trinity House celebrated the charity and those that have supported it over the past ten years. The Princess Royal attended the event, where she spoke in support of the RNRMC, and met and spoke with the charity’s supporters.
The Churchers team will be taking part in this year’s Make a Will Fortnight, which takes place from 12 - 25 February 2018.
