Kidderminster-based assocaite Rachel Summers and other members of the Private Client team were presented with a silver certificate to acknowledge the firm’s ongoing support and success.

mfg Solicitors has been offering the Free Will Service to people aged 55 and over in the Wyre Forest for almost 20 years, giving advice and support for those wishing to write a will or update an existing one.

As part of the service, the law firm provides guidance for those wishing to leave a legacy gift for Cancer Research UK.

The charity receives no government funding for its research and relies heavily on the generosity of people leaving gifts in their wills. Over a third of its research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer is funded through supporters leaving a legacy to the charity.

Rachel Summers, said: “A legacy gift can be anything someone wishes to leave in their will. Traditionally this is money but it could be anything that has a monetary value like an estate or specific item. Anything left to Cancer Research UK can be ring-fenced for research into a specific cancer type or research within a local area.

“To play a big part in legacy gifts for almost 20 years is really important to us and we’re delighted to receive the recognition from a charity which does so much for so many.

Clare Moore, Director of Legacies at Cancer Research UK, added: “We all reach a stage at some point in our lives where we start to look ahead and consider what will happen to our financial affairs in the future when we may no longer be around.

“At Cancer Research UK, we work with a number of local law firms including mfg Solicitors to offer people aged 55 or over the chance to make an all-important first will or to update an existing one. The service has grown in popularity over the past couple of years and while it is provided free of any obligation, the vast majority of people choose to kindly leave a gift to the charity.”

Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress. Every step taken by its doctors, nurses and scientists relies on donations from the public and the kindness of supporters who choose to leave a gift in their will.
