Edinburgh law firm reaches £500k fundraising milestone for Cash for Kids

Each year, Thorntons Solicitors, based at Haymarket Terrace in Edinburgh, fundraises for Cash for Kids through their Charity Wills Campaign for one month.

The campaign sees Thorntons will write or update a will and, rather than charge a fee, ask for an equivalent donation to the charity.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the most recent charity wills month was rather different as all appointments took place via video to keep clients and Thorntons’ employees safe.

But the campaign still proved a success and £60,000 has been raised, bringing the cash total to over half a million pounds.

Several Edinburgh-based projects will benefit from this money including a local community centre which works with over 250 children providing food support.

Partner at Thorntons Morna Coutts said: “It is humbling to hear about the local projects Charity Wills has been able to support thanks to the generosity of our clients and the hard work of our team. Thank you once again to everyone who supported our campaign.”
