We are committed to supporting our local community wherever possible and our corporate social responsibility is something we take seriously. That is one of the reasons we have been shortlisted for the Community Involvement Award at the 2019 British Wills and Probate Awards.
Within Heritage Will Writers, we have a Charity Team that meets regularly to look at how we can continue to support local charities and engage our staff in fundraising activities. Many of our staff are active in volunteering, take part in fundraising activities and helping raise awareness. Some of the Charities and initiatives we support include:
Nelson’s Journey is a Norfolk charity that supports children and young people who have experienced the death of a significant person. They have been our charity of the Year since 2018 and our staff arrange a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. These have included a tandem skydive, Halloween party, Golf day, Purple Picnics and a staff fundraising team building day, in the style of “The Apprentice” TV Show.
Charity Golf Day
Launched in 2017, Heritage Will Writers host an annual Charity Golf Day including 18 holes of golf, two course dinner and prize giving. The first year’s event raised several £000s for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH); Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) and East Anglian Air Ambulance. The 2019 event is fundraising for Nelson’s Journey as part of the Twenty20 scheme, which is commitment by 20 local businesses to each raise over £1,000 for the charity.
Norwich Rugby Club
We have been a Main Club Sponsor at Norwich Rugby Club for several years. They are a proud amateur club with a 132-year history who are committed to supporting grass roots rugby.
Norwich City Dementia Action Alliance
We are proud members of Norwich City Dementia Action Alliance and have made a number of pledges to play our part in making Norwich city a Dementia Friendly city for people living with dementia.
Norfolk Will Help
Heritage Will writers are actively involved in the annual Norfolk WILL Help scheme which was developed by Norfolk’s child bereavement charity, Nelson’s Journey. They wanted to develop a locally focused will writing scheme which enabled Norfolk residents to have their basic wills written in return for a donation that would be split equally between five charities who benefit the local community. All funds raised are passed to the five charities to support their work in the Norfolk community.
