A Norfolk law firm has pledged its support for a campaign to help nine UK charities.

England and Co, which has branches in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Martham and Lowestoft, has signed up to the Will Aid scheme, which runs throughout November.

It is the 10th year the charity has been involved with the scheme, which sees law firms pledge a portion of their time to write basic wills, waiving their normal fee and instead asking clients to make a voluntary donation.

Shannon Thompson, of England and Co, said: “We are very excited to be involved again in the Will Aid campaign this year.

“It gives us an excellent opportunity to reach people in our community who do not have a will and help them to protect their loved ones for the future. It also means we can raise funds for nine incredible charities.”

Will Aid supports the work of charities including Age UK, British Red Cross and NSPCC.
