GN LAW receives Bronze Star for raising over £400,000 for Cancer Research UK through its FREE WILL SERVICE

GN Law has joined forces with Cancer Research UK to help highlight the power of gifts in Wills and saving lives for many years now.

Our trained solicitors at the firm based in North Finchley provide the charity’s Free Will Service, offering free support to people aged over 18 who wish to write or update their Will.

Gifts in Wills fund over a third of the charity’s life-saving research. Without them, Cancer Research UK would not be able to undertake the vital research that will one day beat cancer for patients in London and across the UK.

Clare Moore, Director of Legacies at Cancer Research UK, said: “We’re so pleased to be able to offer our Free Will Service to over 18s in North Finchley and work with GN Law to help people make an all-important first Will or update an existing one.”

Together with their supporters, Cancer Research UK has played a role in developing 8 out the world’s top 10 cancer drugs; helped prove the link between tobacco and cancer, preventing millions of deaths worldwide; and were a key player in the development of radiotherapy, which benefits more than 130,000 patients every year in the UK.
