Our initial partnership with Chailey Heritage Foundation will see us launch three main initiatives:
1. Fundraising activities and events in support of Chailey Heritage Foundation
2. Creating a year-round free will writing services for supporters of the Foundation
3. Working closely with Chailey Heritage Foundation to help build greater awareness of the Foundation and its cause
Of the partnership, Elisabeth Squires, Head of Private Client, said:
“Charitable gifts made through wills are one of the easiest ways people can support charities, and while many of the big names out there have long-established will writing schemes, local charities like Chailey Heritage Foundation, are amongst those charities who need funding the most.
With property values skyrocketing in the last few decades, many people are now sitting on hundreds of thousands of pounds of equity, a small percentage of which could not only be transformational for a local charity, but could also reduce any inheritance tax liable on your estate.
Rather than supporting national charities where in many cases, very little of the money you donate makes it through to the final cause, almost all of the money you donate through a legacy gift or otherwise to Chailey Heritage Foundation, goes to benefit the children they support.”
As a law firm, we have grown significantly since we first started developing our business at the start of 2020 and this could not have happened without the support of not only the local Sussex community, but charities like Chailey Heritage Foundation, who are the crossroads for local businesses and communities.
We owe our growth to not only the local Brighton and Hove community where our offices are based, but also to the smaller, and sometimes forgotten communities dotted across the whole of Sussex.
Chailey Heritage Foundation is a charity with a long history in the Sussex community, and it’s a privilege to us to be able to partner with an organisation which is so dedicated to its cause, and to be able to focus attention on a charity which, outside of Brighton, doesn’t always receive the praise it deserves.
Our Managing Director, Paul Britton, had this to say:
“We’re incredibly excited to begin our partnership with one of Sussex’s oldest and historic charities, and to help raise awareness for a cause that can sometimes be brushed to one side.
The young people supported by the team at Chailey Heritage Foundation require specialist services and equipment that are not only costly, but that can also only be funded through voluntary income from generous supporters and donors.
By helping Chailey Heritage Foundation to raise awareness in both Sussex and London, we hope to bring complex neurodisabilities to the forefront of the conversation, while supporting children who need help the most.”
