Charity Will Month 2020

Staff at Dickinson Parker Hill Solicitors are gearing up for their annual Charity Will Month. This year the firm will be raising much needed funds for two local charities, Ormskirk Civic Hall and Freshfields Animal Rescue.

Last year the firm raised £12,587 and since 2009 have raised over £116,000 for numerous local good causes. Like many other businesses, the firm have had to adapt to the difficult circumstances that we all now have to contend with.

Michael Prendergast, a Partner at Dickinson Parker Hill, said ‘The last few months have been difficult for everyone and many charities have suffered a significant drop in their income. We wanted to help two local charities that we know local people in Ormskirk, Southport and across Lancashire benefit from and support. We are very happy to be helping the Civic and Freshfields and hope that we can raise as much as possible to support them.’

Helen Stanbury, Director of Freshfields Animal Rescue, had the following comments to make ‘We are delighted to continue our relationship with Michael and his colleagues at DPH for Charity Wills Month 2020. These are challenging times for everyone, and for our vital community work to be recognised in this way is wonderful. The Charity Will donations will help us to transform the lives of abused, abandoned and unwanted animals and to give them new hope of a happy, forever and loving home’

Liz Wainwright from Ormskirk Civic Hall said, ‘We were absolutely delighted to have been chosen by DPH as their charity this year. We are extremely grateful to them and their clients for supporting The Civic through Charity Will Month. The last few months have been difficult for all entertainment venues and as a community enterprise this support will help us keep The Civic going.’

The scheme works by clients making a donation to the charity rather than paying a fee for their will. The recommended minimum donation for a simple single will is £60 and £120 for simple mirror wills.
