Vital funds raised for Breast Cancer Haven

Wadsworths Solicitors have provided a breast cancer charity with a boost – by donating money raised from their Will writing service.

The firm donated £5 from each Will written during November to Shirley-based Breast Cancer Haven.

Their efforts amounted to a total of £355.

Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands opened in October 2017 to provide support for the 2,500 women diagnosed with breast cancer each year within 35 miles of the new centre. Breast Cancer Haven supports women through their breast cancer treatment by providing emotional, physical and practical help.

Michael Wadsworth, head of the Wadsworths’ Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney Department, said: “Wadsworths Solicitors are delighted and proud to have been involved in fundraising for the new Breast Cancer Haven centre in Solihull, West Midlands. 

“We pride ourselves on taking an active part in our local community and are therefore thrilled to be supporting such a vibrant and much needed support centre for local people going through breast cancer treatment. 

“We plan to continue working closely with Breast Cancer Haven by raising funds and assisting in any way we can in the future.” 

Matthew Price, corporate fundraising officer at Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands, said: ‘We’re delighted to have the support of Wadsworths Solicitors.

“Alongside their donation of £355 from Wills Month 2017 their business development manager Victoria Hicks is taking on the exciting challenge of a skydive on 17 March 2018 with the aim of raising another £500 for Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands.

“With Wadsworths Solicitors support we can continue to help women in the West Midlands who are in need of our service.”

Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands must raise £500,000 each year to run its free support service for local women.
