We are delighted to be supporting the third annual Merton Giving Week, a dedicated week of fundraising and celebration of community giving from 30th Nov – 6th Dec. Make an appointment to write or update your will during Merton Giving Week and we will waive our fee for a donation to Merton Giving.

2020 has presented huge challenges to all aspect of our lives and those around us – emotionally, physically, and financially. Merton Giving supports charities and organisations locally that are working to help support those most in need. Let’s help fill this festive season with community spirit!

This Merton Giving Week, the focus is to support charities who are helping those around us experiencing food insecurity. The pandemic, as we know, has seen a sharp escalation in those looking for help to feed their families, including those that cannot access food or afford it.

Peacock & Co are fundraising for this cause by offering will-writing in exchange for donations. Simply call us to book an appointment on 020 8944 5290 or contact our private client team. Your donation will go to the Merton Giving Coronavirus Fund – Response, Resilience and Recovery – which will provide financial assistance to charities working to support people suffering food insecurity. You don’t need to make a will to donate however! Donations of any amount can be made here. We value your support.

If anything, 2020 has made us think a bit more carefully about our lives and those around us. Having a will in place will ensure that those closest to you receive what you intend for them. This is especially important if you are an unmarried family, or have children separate to your partner. By making your will in aid of Merton Giving, you can head into the New Year with peace of mind and give back at the same time.

Merton Giving is also running A Gift For All – an opportunity to donate a festive shoebox hamper to brighten someone’s day. Working with Sustainable Merton, Wimbledon Guild, Polish Family Association, Commonside Trust, Friends in St Helier, St John’s Church High Path and Merton Council, hampers can be dropped off for distribution to local residents. See our news page for more details in the coming days about how you can get involved.
