Willans raises nearly £20,000 for Maggie’s Cheltenham

Gloucestershire law firm Willans LLP has raised nearly £20,000 for its charity of the year, Maggie’s Cheltenham.

Cheltenham-based Willans LLP solicitors has raised nearly £20,000 for its charity of the year, Maggie’s Cheltenham.

The Gloucestershire law firm arranged a variety of fundraising activities, including a bowling tournament involving 130 local businesses, dress-down days, a baking competition and a Christmas carol concert.

Lots of the firm’s staff took part in Miles for Maggie’s where they walked, ran or cycled a virtual route between Maggie’s centres across the country, with some even running a half-marathon.

Lawyers at Willans also took part in Maggie’s Wills Week where they created wills for free in return for a donation to the charity.

Willans managing partner, Bridget Redmond, said: ‘It has been a pleasure to back this vital cause over the past year, and it is fantastic that the amount we’ve collectively raised will help the Cheltenham centre to continue providing much-needed, invaluable support.

‘We’re very grateful to everyone who donated, attended events and volunteered their time; together we’ve ‘broken a record’ in reaching our highest-ever fundraising total.’

Centre fundraising manager at Maggie’s Cheltenham, Anna Mason, said: ‘We have had a great time working in partnership with Willans for the past year and we are truly grateful for the fantastic amount they have all raised, through hard work and creative fundraising.

‘The events have been fabulous, and even though the Maggie’s team came last on the bowling night, we enjoyed every minute. You have enabled us to continue to support the thousands of people living with cancer, their families and friends in our local community. Thank you from all of us at Maggie’s.’
