Dickinson Parker Hill Solicitors
STAFF and clients at Dickinson Parker Hill Solicitors, based in Ormskirk, have helped raise over £7,400 for Autism Initiatives through a Charity Will Month held during November last year.
Partner, Michael Prendergast, said: “Each year, we hold the Charity Will Month and each year the people of West Lancashire continue to be incredibly generous with their support.
We would like to thank all of those clients who took part in their scheme for their kind donations and also thank all of our staff who help make the scheme possible with their hard work and dedication.”
The scheme works by clients making a donation to the chosen charity, rather than paying the usual fee. Previous years have seen Dickinson Parker Hill support Macmillan, Help for Heroes and Alder Hey.
The charity benefits from the additional funds and local people get the chance to get their affairs in order by having a professionally prepared will put in place for them by a qualified solicitor.
Autism Initiatives is a charity that helps support children and adults with autism and learning difficulties. They have a centre based at Mere Brow and supported accommodation across the region.
Mr Prendergast said: “We have every intention of carrying out the scheme again this year and hopefully we will be just as successful as in previous years.”
