DRN’s Charitable End to the Year
This entry was posted in News on .
Over the course of the last three months of 2017, the team at DRN Solicitors, headquartered in Burnley, have raised and donated significant sums of money to local and national charitable organisations.
In November, DRN embarked on a month-long initiative to provide a free will writing service in partnership with the Will Aid charity, helping customers to protect their future and that of their families, whilst raising a significant amount for Will Aid.
Sara Jane Chorkley of the DRN Burnley office, and Dawn Walmsley from the Colne office, led the initiative by producing basic wills for customers throughout the month.
The suggested donation to Will Aid for this service was £90. This represented a 50% cost saving versus the normal price of a basic will. Furthermore, mirrored wills were offered for couples for a suggested donation of just £150.
DRN are also proud to have supported The Young Carers Project Team within local charity BPRCVS. Young Carers supports carers aged 7-18, who typically care for family members with mental health and / or substance misuse issues. On the run up to Christmas, DRN invited locals to donate presents for young carers, giving them a Christmas to remember. In addition, DRN also donated £1,000 to the Young Carers Team.
In keeping with supporting children’s charities, DRN also observed Christmas Jumper Day in their offices on Friday 15, December. Christmas Jumper Day is an initiative from Save the Children, and taking part resulted in the DRN staff making donations to Save the Children via this initiative.
Children’s charities such as Save the Children and The Young Carers Project are causes that are close to DRN, given the excellent work the DRN Family Department does all year round handling children matters.
In addition to helping children, DRN have also donated £1,000 to Pendleside Hospice. An organisation that does a wonderful job to help those in the local community who are coming to the end of their lives.
Completing the recent acts of kindness and helping spread the Christmas spirit throughout the local community, DRN hosted a festive giveaway on Facebook. Over a period of seven days on the run up to Christmas, seven prizes were awarded to lucky locals, all of whom will now no doubt have even more festive cheer!
