An East Anglian legal firm's charity wills month has resulted in Norfolk's sight loss charity receiving a cheque for £1,000 – one of five local charities to receive that amount.

Fosters Solicitors offered a free will writing service in November in return for donations to five local charities. A total of £5,000 was raised, including £1,000 for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).

Solicitor in the firm's wills and probate department, Rachel Chiarotti, handed over a cheque to NNAB chief executive Gina Dormer at the charity's Norwich headquarters.

She said: 'We had a fantastic take-up of our charity wills month, with our lawyers working to capacity writing wills. The campaign achieved two important aims - highlighting the importance of having a will, and raising money for five fantastic local charities which support so many people in the county.'

Ms Dormer added: 'We rely on the generosity of firms like Fosters, as well as people like their clients, to deliver all of the work we do to support visually-impaired people in Norfolk.'
