Solicitor Peter Leach of Blackett Hart and Pratt helped clients establish the Wright-Funk Fund with County Durham Foundation.
"My clients wanted to commemorate their mothers by setting up a fund from money they’d received from a legacy. They wish to help people keep their families together, support those in difficulty and help young people in care within County Durham and Darlington."
County Durham Foundation offered an attractive alternative to the expense and administrative burden associated with setting up a private trust.
"My clients are very happy with their choice as they are involved in all stages of the decision making process. They have worked with foundation staff to give four grants including support for a family’s travel expenses to send their daughter with cerebral palsy to a specialist school" explains Peter.
