Heritage Will Writers announce their Charity of the Year for 2019

Heritage Will Writers is delighted to announce that Nelsons Journey is to be their Charity of the Year for 2019.

Heritage Will Writers Managing Director, Kathy Long said “Nelsons Journey do an amazing job supporting bereaved children and young people throughout Norfolk. Several members of our staff have visited their offices at Smiles House and got a real understanding of the fantastic work that they do, so it really is a charity that is close to our hearts.  We are very proud to be supporting them throughout 2019.” 

In November 2017, Heritage Will Writers joined the NJ Twenty20 scheme – A twelve month commitment taken by 20 Norfolk businesses to raise a minimum of £1,000 each to help celebrate the 20th year of Nelson’s Journey.  Heritage Will Writers staff held a variety of fund raising events including a Corporate Golf Day, Quiz, Halloween Party and Purple Picnic, as well as several brave staff members doing a tandem skydive all of which raised over £8,000 for the charity. 

Heritage Will Writers are East Anglia and the South East’s leading dedicated Will writing service, serving tens of thousands of clients. In addition to writing Wills, the team offer a full probate service, secure

document storage and can help with trust enquiries, powers of attorney and property ownership changes.

As part of their Team Building Charity day in December, the staff were given an Apprentice style challenge where they were split into six teams, given £50 each and tasked with raising as much money as possible by their very own Alan Sugar, “Lord” Burrell.

Teams took part in lots of different activities, including a car wash and tombola at Riverside Retail Park, a sponsored walk from their offices to Smiles House, a Fitness session with BTF, packing shoppers bags in Morrisons and a team at Taverham Nursery Centre who had a whole host of pet treats and even did doggy tarot card readings.  In their various ways the teams all smashed their own targets, raising an incredible £1700 between them, in just 4 hours.

Gena Moore, Corporate Fundraiser for Nelson’s Journey said “We are delighted that the Heritage Will Writers team have chosen to support Nelson’s Journey this year. The passion demonstrated by the team to support Nelson’s Journey is infectious and we look forward to seeing what other interesting and fun ideas they have to raise much needed funds for the charity in 2019”

Heritage Will Writers already have their first fundraising event in the diary which is a Golf Day on Tuesday 3 September at Royal Norwich Golf Club.  To secure your place or to find out more, simply email marketing@heritagewills.co.uk
