Solicitors in Bridlington supported a successful appeal which helped Saint Catherine’s raise more than £16,000.

Pinkney Grunwells in Bridlington joined others in taking part in Make a Will Week when they drew up simple wills free of charge in return for a donation to the hospice.

The final total raised was £16,665 for patient care.

Hospice fundraiser Debbie Kay said they were delighted that the annual appeal had raised so much during Saint Catherine’s special year.

She said: “We’re so grateful to the solicitors who support this appeal and helped us raise such a fantastic sum to support the families who need us.”

Alison Jeffels, from the Bridlington office of Pinkney Grunwells, said they had been happy to help.

“It gives us a real sense of achievement to see how much has been raised to help a local charity,” she said.

Make a Will Week will be held again next year from 18 April.
