Wansbroughs hosts Wills, LPAs and Charitable Giving Event
On Thursday 12th October we were delighted to welcome clients, referrers and peers along to the Town Hall in Devizes for our legacy event.
The event featured talks from Wansbroughs’ Private Client team on a wide array of legal matters, including:
- Wills – Tom Britten, Managing Associate
- Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) – Beth Williams, Associate Solicitor
- Charitable Giving – Andrew Langbridge, Solicitor
On the night, we were delighted to be joined by Fiona Oliver, CEO of the Wiltshire Community Foundation (WCF) who delivered an inspiring talk about the work of the Foundation and the new Women and Girls Fund.
Wiltshire Community Foundation’s (WCF) Women and Girls Fund
Currently, women and girls’ groups receive less than 2 percent of the UK’s total charitable giving, leaving few avenues of support.
The new Women and Girls’ Fund launched by WCF will aid the advancement, empowerment and support of women and girls across Wiltshire.
The fund will support local charity and community groups running projects that challenge the inequality, abuse and discrimination experienced by women and girls, and amplify their voice and experience to advocate for change, to make our county a fairer and safer place.
To kickstart the fund Wansbroughs has become the first corporate sponsor to sign up to support the fund. A charity raffle held at the event also raised an incredible £350.00 for the charity’s fund.
Kathryn Smith Cowap, Partner, said:
“We were delighted to welcome our guests along to this event in Devizes and share updates on private client law. Feedback from the event has been extremely positive and has given many of our guests ‘food for thought’ when it comes to future planning.
“As a firm, we are delighted to continue our support of WCF and help launch the new Women and Girls Fund.”
