Dundee's largest law firm has raised a record-breaking amount for Cash for Kids as a result of its annual Charity Wills Campaign.
Thorntons will donate an impressive £23,225 to the charity following their successful annual Charity Wills Month, which was held in November.
The campaign aimed to highlight the importance of drawing up a Will, with Thorntons donating its fees from all Wills created or updated to Cash for Kids.
Having run the campaign since 1996, Thorntons have consistently raised a generous amount for the charity, but this year exceeded their previous record of £22,000.
The kind donation will go to help support hundreds of children across Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and North Fife, funding specialist equipment for children with physical disabilities, respite for families with a chronically ill child, as well as helping to fund play schemes and outings for young carers.
Malcolm Farquhar, partner at Thorntons, said: "We are thrilled with the amount of money raised for Cash for Kids during our annual Wills Month.
"The charity is a fantastic local cause that we take great pleasure in partnering with in our campaign to highlight the importance of a having an up-to-date Will.
"We are extremely grateful to our clients for supporting the campaign, and it's a pleasure to donate such a large amount of money to such a worthwhile charity."
The firm will present the cheque to representatives from the Angus, Dundee and Perth Young Carers on Monday 10 March in the Young Carers Project building, Dundee.
