Jordans Solicitors, through its membership of the QualitySolicitors legal network, teamed up with the charity five years ago to offer a Will writing service for those aged 55 years and over.

Since then, nearly 3000 people have left a lasting legacy to the charity in their Will.

Dylan Carroll, Barnardo’s Gifts in Wills manager, said: “It’s amazing for our partnership with QualitySolicitors to have hit the £10m mark. We’re so grateful to those who have made a commitment to the children, young people and families that we work with.

“Gifts left in Wills are our lifeblood. By remembering Barnardo’s alongside family and friends, our supporters are helping to ensure that the vulnerable children and young people who we work with will have someone to turn to in the future. Everyone who participates in the scheme and remembers Barnardo’s with a legacy, large or small, will contribute to the transformation of the lives of those we work with.”

He added: “The team at QualitySolicitors have been incredibly supportive of Barnardo’s work. As well as promoting our charity through the course of their work, they’ve thrown themselves into fundraising and learning about Barnardo’s work so they can discuss this with clients and explain how donations can change the lives of Barnardo’s beneficiaries.”
