A law firm in St Albans has raised thousands of pounds for charity by writing wills in exchange for donations.

SA Law in London Road collected £5,637 by scrapping fees and asking customers to make a donation for the amount instead.

The money will be split between a number of charities including the British Red Cross, NSPCC and Age UK.

Shamima Monsur, a solicitor at the company, said: "Our clients are extremely grateful for this service as it enables them to prepare for their loved ones whilst doing their bit for charity.

"It is also a great way for SA Law to support these charities and we are pleased to have been able to raise this amount to help them continue their great work."
