A local solicitor has donated £5,495 to Freshfields Animal Rescue following a Charity Will Month.
Mike Prendergast, of Dickinson Parker Hill Solicitors, recently presented a cheque to the charity after raising the money last November.
Each year, Mike and his colleagues hold a Charity Will Month to support local charities and good causes and this year Freshfields was selected as one of the local charities to benefit.
Since 2009, the Dickinson Parker Hill Charity Will Month has helped raise over £127,000. Clients from across, Southport, Ormskirk and throughout Lancashire and Merseyside have benefitted from being able to put in place Wills to ensure their affairs are in order.
Mike said: ‘The last few months have been very difficult for so many people in and we have had all had to adapt so many aspects of our lives. We were very happy to help Freshfields as we know so many people care about their animals and in recent times have relied on them even more for companionship and comfort.”
Helen Stanbury from Freshfields Animal Rescue said: ‘Everyone at Freshfields is incredibly grateful for the compassion and continued support of Dickinson Parker Hill for the abused, abandoned and unwanted animals at Freshfields. They genuinely care about making a difference in their local community. They have an integrity which should be applauded. The funds raised in Will Month will go towards our rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming work and is greatly appreciated in these difficult times. On behalf of the animals, a huge thank you from everyone at Freshfields Animal Rescue.”
