Will to Give

Instead of paying the usual fee, clients were able to make a donation to Aurora, the charity dedicated to supporting local people undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment.
James Sutherland, one of our partners said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the clients who came in and made their Will during our fundraising campaign; they have helped us to raise a fantastic £5,115 for Aurora.
“On top of that, the marjority of clients also gift aided their donations which will significantly increase the final amount that the charity receives.”
Peter Bradley, Aurora campaign manager said: “There are many occasions when being a small local charity is a disadvantage in trying to raise much-needed funds.
“We are pleased to say however that there are also many advantages to being local and small especially when we can work with companies like Atherton Godfrey. Our association allows us to build relationships, create new contacts and new friends and raise awareness throughout the community and with Atherton Godfrey’s clients.
“In real terms, to receive over £5,000 is a tremendous amount of money to our charity. It costs approximately £25 per visit to an Aurora therapist at any of our five centres. Each patient receives one of many treatments completely free of charge. Thanks to Atherton Godfrey’s generosity over 200 local cancer patients will be able to receive help from Aurora at a time when they need it the most.”
