A law firm in Peterborough has raised more than £5,000 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign.

Metcalfe Copeman & Pettefar LLP got involved in the Will Aid scheme which asks solicitors to write wills for local people and ask only for a voluntary donation.

Solicitors have taken part in the annual month-long fundraiser raising £5,200.

Taking into account the other nine years the firm has taken part in Will Aid, their total raised to date is £37,880.

Their efforts in 2017 made them one of the top donating firms to take part in the scheme last year.

Sarah Gregory from the firm, said: “Our team has thoroughly enjoyed participating in Will Aid and have worked very hard.

“We are happy to donate our time towards Will Aid. It is a great way of generating a link with new clients.”

Lawyers wrote dozens of wills during November last year, generously giving their time for free for the whole month.
