SOUTH WEST SOLICITORS EVERYS SIGN UP TO SUPPORT SOMERSET WILDLIFE TRUST, ALSO PROVIDING TRUST SUPPORTERS EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNT ON PROFESSIONAL FEES

 

29th May, 2018 - Somerset Wildlife Trust is pleased to welcome full service law firm, Everys Solicitors, to its Corporate Membership programme.  Everys, who provide high quality legal advice to families and businesses across the South West, have also confirmed they will be providing a 20% professional fee discount to Somerset Wildlife Trust members who wish to prepare a Will.  In addition they will donate 10% of the professional fees associated with buying or selling a residential property to the Trust, when a member uses services provided by the Taunton office.

Will Vine, Partner and Head of their Taunton Office said: “Everys Solicitors are proud to support Somerset Wildlife Trust. The work they carry out is particularly important to us as a firm, especially as they are inspiring and developing the next generation of conservation champions, wildlife enthusiasts and lovers of the natural world. Leaving the environment healthy for future generations to enjoy is a goal that I believe businesses like ours have a part to play in achieving.  We also hope that, through providing a member discount we can reach out to people in our local communities who do not have a will and help them to protect their loved ones for the future.”

Lucy Marsh, Legacies Manager said: “Leaving a Will is really important to ensure your loved ones are looked after, yet over half of the population have not prepared one.  With the help of Everys we hope to make it easy and simple for our members to do this. Through the partnership there is no obligation whatsoever to give to the Trust but some members, who have a particularly attachment in their lifetime to a reserve or piece of land want to reflect this in their wills after they have looked after their loved ones, and need guidance on the most efficient way to do this.  Legacy gifts are really valuable to us in preserving Somerset’s wonderful natural environment for future generations to appreciate and enjoy, so any legacies large or small are gratefully received.”

More information about the discounts on offer by Everys to Somerset Wildlife Trust members, and ways of getting in touch, can be found here.

About Somerset Wildlife Trust – www.somersetwildlife.org

Somerset’s wildlife is part of what makes living, working and visiting the county so special. Somerset Wildlife Trust has been protecting vulnerable wildlife and preserving Somerset’s wild places for over 50 years and, with over 18,000 members, is the largest conservation charity in the county.  Alongside our members and volunteers we work year round to protect wildlife, transform landscapes and put nature back into people’s lives. 

 

Our reserves holding of over 1700 hectares incorporates a diverse range of habitats from wetlands to woodlands, grasslands and meadows, and provide secure environments for a diverse range of wildlife such as Dormice, Otters, Hedgehogs, Barn Owls and many other species - as well as providing safe havens for some of Somerset’s most iconic species such as Bittern and Large Blue butterfly. These habitats also connect green spaces across the county so wildlife can travel, and are the bedrock upon which we are able to deliver key conservation programmes across the year.

 

The majority of our work is made possible through the support of our members and people who live and work in the county who choose to make donations, fundraise for us or leave generous legacies. By working together with our members and supporters we really can make a difference.
