Local Law firm Hegarty Solicitors have donated £3000 raised during the pandemic to local NHS charities.
From April to June 2020 the firm supported the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust and the Leicester Hospitals Charity by donating a proportion of all wills fees generated to acknowledge the outstanding service the NHS is delivering to local people.
Greg Baker, Partner and Head of the Wills, Trusts and Probate department at Hegarty Solicitors commented “We are pleased to be able to make a donation to the Trust charities as our way of saying ‘Thank you’ to our local NHS staff.
“We believe in supporting our local NHS and recognising the incredible work they do. For a number of years, we have offered a discount on our family law, wills, trusts and probate and conveyancing services fees to NHS and emergency services staff, however, we know that throughout the pandemic, our local NHS Trusts have been under increasing pressure and have worked tirelessly to help our local communities. So, in April last year we decided we wanted to do something extra to support staff working for our local NHS Trust, by donating a proportion of our fees to the Trust charities. “
Greg continued “We hope this donation goes some way to helping support NHS staff and patients at this incredibly challenging time. As a firm we are committed to making a positive impact on the community we work in and we are keen to offer our help and support and give something back whenever we can.”
Joanne Bennis, Chief Nurse at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said “Hegarty Solicitors through this donation will be actively supporting the health and wellbeing of our staff, who have been working tirelessly since the beginning of this pandemic. We are extremely grateful for the generous support offered to us by Hegarty Solicitors and everyone else in our local community, thank you.”
