A LOCAL solicitor’s firm is providing free legal support in a team effort with a local cancer charity service.

Parker-Bullen Solicitors have joined forces with the Jane Scarth House in Romsey to offer free legal advice for those suffering because of cancer.

In addition to offering complementary therapies, befriending services and counselling, Jane Scarth House offer several advice services.

As part of the package, Parker-Bullen have agreed to offer service users and supporters of Jane Scarth House free 30-minute consultations to discuss Wills, Powers of Attorney, trusts, probate, tax, and estate planning.

The legal advice service is run on the last Friday of every month. The first took place in October and feedback was positive according to Parker-Bullen.

The next session is set for Friday, November 26.

Rachel Tucker, centre manager for Jane Scarth House said: “I am so pleased that we are working in partnership with our neighbours Parker Bullen who are offering our clients a free 30-minute consultation to discuss Wills, Powers of Attorney, trusts, probate, tax and estate planning on the last Friday of every month at our centre in Romsey. Here at Jane Scarth House, working with and helping the community is so important to us. By creating these links with local businesses such as Parker Bullen, we can offer our clients more help in their time of need.”

Ashley Partridge, associate and head of the wills, probate and estate planning department at Parker-Bullen Solicitors said: “As a firm we are keen to support charities in our local communities. Following the opening of our office in Romsey earlier this year we have recently started working with Jane Scarth House.

“The charity has an excellent reputation in the local area and just recently was awarded Test Valley Business Awards Charity 2021 of the Year and Romsey Chamber of Commerce Joint Charity of the Year 2021 with Romsey Youth Charity.

“The legal clinic is offered in their premises, they have a lovely, informal space which I think really helps put people at ease and I hope that by offering this we are able to help add value to the service Jane Scarth House are able to offer and assist people in what is often a very difficult time.

“It is certainly a partnership we hope to continue and build upon.”
