Hillyer McKeown teamed up with Save The Family for the charity’s Will Writing Week.

People were given the chance to have a simple will made or updated in return for a donation to the charity, which is situated on the outskirts of Chester and is dedicated to helping homeless and troubled families.

The typical cost of a simple will would be in excess of £250.

It is the first time in the charity’s 40 year history that it has held a Will Writing Week.

More than £2,000 in donations was raised during the week-long event.

Simon Groom, CEO of Save The Family, said: “The donations received will make a significant difference to the families our charity helps by boosting the fundraising efforts of the charity. Save The Family is extremely grateful to Hillyer McKeown for giving their time free of charge to support us in this initiative.”

Ruth Heap, Head of Wills, Trusts and Estates at Hillyer McKeown, said: “We are delighted to help raise vital funds for Save The Family while, at the same time, highlighting the importance of making or updating a will.

“It is never too early to make a will and as people’s circumstances change with marriage, children, home-buying and retirement, there is a need to consider updating your will.”
