Support from Shoosmiths

Shoosmiths Raise over £7,000 for the Women’s Centre – And Choose us Again This Year!

We are delighted to announce that the Nottingham branch of the law firm Shoosmiths have chosen us for their Charity of the Year for a second year, having raised over £7,000 for us over the last year.

Staff at Shoosmiths have run marathons, baked cakes donated raffle prizes, held dress down days and football-themed events to raise over £7,000 for the Women’s Centre.  In addition, they have donated much-needed office furniture, hosted our staff away day and given us pro-bono legal advice, all of which have saved us time and money.  Our thanks go to all at Shoosmiths for their amazing support.  This year, they are supporting us in making over our garden to create a therapeutic outdoor space for women who use the Centre.  We are really looking forward to working with them again this year.

Jo’s experience of using our will-writing scheme

As you may know we recently launched our Make a Will scheme. During March and April, you can book an appointment with one of our participating solicitors to make or update your will.  The solicitors have all agreed to donate their fee for making or updating your will to Nottingham Women’s Centre because they, like us, believe in trying to make Nottingham, and the world, a better place for women and girls. Making a will is really important, yet it’s one of the things that many of us never quite get round to.

Jo’s experience of making a will

“As someone who has thought on and off for years that I really need to get around to writing my will I was delighted when I saw the Nottingham Women’s Centre will writing scheme #LeaveItToHer. I took advantage of this scheme to donate much needed funds to the Women’s Centre while getting a great price for a professional will writing service. The solicitor at Clegg’s Solicitors was very helpful, which made putting together my will really straightforward and easy. I now have peace of mind that should anything happen to me my wishes will be carried out and my loved ones cared for.”

To get an appointment, or for more information, you can contact us on either wills@nottinghamwomenscentre.com or by calling us on 0115 941 1475 and we will give you all of the information you need to get set up for writing or updating your will.
