For a whole week in February, Wards Solicitors ran a free “Make A Will Week” for people from The West of England MS Therapy Centre, based in Bradley Stoke.
In return for a donation to the MS Therapy Centre Wards Solicitors, in Bradley Stoke, have prepared Wills completely free of charge.
Jenny Pierce, Partner and Head of the Wills, Probate and Mental Capacity team at Wards, said: “Every adult should have an up-to-date Will and it’s crucial that it be properly written so we were delighted to support The West of England MS Therapy Centre in our professional capacity with a free Make A Will Week.”
As a result of Wards Solicitors’ generosity a total of approximately £1,300 has been raised for the Centre which provides vital treatments and therapies to people with Multiple Sclerosis from across the Greater Bristol region.
Janet Epplestone, Fundraising Manager at the Centre, said: “Wards have long been keen supporters of the Centre and this latest gesture has benefited the Centre in more ways than one: not only do some of our members and volunteers have peace of mind, knowing their Will is up-to-date, but there has also been a surge in donations to the Centre. Thank you Wards!”
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a terrifying and unpredictable illness for which there is no cure. Disability often appears from the onset and symptoms include constant pain, chronic fatigue and cognitive problems. Founded in 1985, The West of England MS Therapy Centre offers a full range of therapies and support clinics combined with a social environment to combat isolation and depression.
