CHAL­FONT St Giles so­lic­i­tors Cart­mell and Co have been pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate by the Bri­tish Red Cross (BRC) for rais­ing nearly £10,000.

The com­pany, who also have a branch in Stone, took part in the Will Aid scheme in which they wrote wills in re­turn for a do­na­tion to char­ity.

Anna Rzemie­niecka from the BRC said: “We’d like to thank Cart­mell and Co and all the peo­ple who made their will dur­ing Will Aid month last Novem­ber.

“The time do­nated by so­lic­i­tors and the generous do­na­tions from ev­ery­one who made a will are al­ready help­ing to save and trans­form lives around the world.

“Will Aid also gives peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to leave legacy gifts and we are ex­tremely grate­ful to ev­ery­one who chose to in­clude the Red Cross in their will.

Will Aid, now in its 27th year, raises money for Ac­tionAid, BRC, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save The Chil­dren, Sight­savers, Age UK, Scot­tish Catholic In­ter­na­tional Aid Fund and Tro­caire and has this year £1.1m.

Robert Cart­mell, di­rec­tor and so­lic­i­tor at the firm, said: “We were de­lighted to once again take part in the Will Aid pro­gramme. We will ab­so­lutely be tak­ing part again next year.”

Cam­paign di­rec­tor Peter de Vena Frank said: “Over the years, the Will Aid cam­paign has made an amaz­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the work of the nine par­tic­i­pat­ing char­i­ties and this year was no ex­cep­tion. I would like to of­fer my heart­felt thanks to the so­lic­i­tors and will mak­ers in this area and let them know that thanks to them, lives will change for the bet­ter and peo­ple who need it will con­tinue to re­ceive the help and sup­port that the char­i­ties work so hard to pro­vide.”

Do­na­tion: Adam Hogg, He­len MacDiarmid, Anna Rzemie­niecka, Jo­hanna Knott, Re­becca Gur­ney and Robert Cart­mell
