Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass Solic­i­tors have raised £1114.00 for the Ani­mal Sanc­tu­ary as part of Will Week.

The Wilm­slow law firm pro­vid­ed stan­dard Wills & advice in return for a dona­tion to the Ani­mal Sanc­tu­ary, Wilmslow.

A Will (or Tes­ta­ment) is a legal dec­la­ra­tion by which a per­son, the Tes­ta­tor, names one or more per­sons to man­age his/​her Estate and pro­vides for the trans­fer of his/​her prop­er­ty at death. Will Week gives an oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­sid­er impor­tant per­son­al fac­tors whilst sup­port­ing a local char­i­ty either through dona­tions & legacies.

The Ani­mal Sanc­tu­ary, Wilm­slow, is run by the Humane Edu­ca­tion Soci­ety, a char­i­ta­ble organ­i­sa­tion work­ing for a more com­pas­sion­ate soci­ety through edu­ca­tion and prac­ti­cal work with chil­dren and animals.

The Sanc­tu­ary requires con­stant finan­cial sup­port to help look after the ris­ing num­ber ani­mals that come into their care each year and to pro­vide a safe and nur­tur­ing envi­ron­ment for them to live out their lives if they can­not be rehomed. The Soci­ety has plans in place for the future and with suf­fi­cient finance will be help­ing ani­mals and pro­mot­ing humane prin­ci­ples for many years to come.

Melanie Hay, Trustee of The Ani­mal Sanc­tu­ary, said It’s absolute­ly won­der­ful that Jack­son, Bar­rett and Gass, a firm of local Solic­i­tors, have come for­ward to sup­port us.

Their exper­tise has helped local peo­ple make Wills & organ­ise their affairs, whilst at the same time sup­port­ing a small, ded­i­cat­ed ani­mal sanc­tu­ary sit­u­at­ed on their doorsteps that is strug­gling for funds. We are so grate­ful to Jack­son, Bar­rett and Gass for all kindness.”

Wills & Pro­bate spe­cial­ist, Paul Clark, said We received a fan­tas­tic response from the local com­mu­ni­ty dur­ing Will Week.

It encour­aged many peo­ple to approach a dif­fi­cult sub­ject and dis­cuss how they would like to help their loved ones. Every­body we met showed great enthu­si­asm for sup­port­ing the Sanc­tu­ary and we are very proud of the gen­er­ous dona­tions made by our clients.”
