Convey Law, the Newport-based law firm has raised £50,000 for Children with Cancer charity through the Conveyancing Foundation’s Free Legal Fee Competition.

Based in Newport city-centre with 88 members of staff, Convey Law are founding members of the Conveyancing Foundation, which was set up to encourage conveyancing lawyers to raise funds for their chosen charities.

In the last five years, the Conveyancing Association Free Legal Fee Competition has raised more than £440,000 for a variety of charities with more than £86,000 raised in 2016 alone.

As part of the fundraising for Children with Cancer, three members of staff from Convey Law – Lloyd Davies, Rory Brown and Geraint Aubrey – took part in its Three Peaks National Challenge last year; climbing the UK’s three highest mountains; Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden in 24 hours.

Conveyancing Foundation chairman, and managing director of Convey Law, Lloyd Davies, said: “The Free Legal Fee Competition is a fantastic opportunity for conveyancers to raise funds for their chosen charities. Wilson Nesbitt Solicitors and Bright LLP joined the competition last year and are now busy raising thousands of pounds for their separate charities.

“It would not have been possible for us to raise £50,000 for Children with Cancer last year without the help of our clients through the Conveyancing Foundation Free Legal Fee Competition. Approximately 80 per cent of our clients make a £10 donation on completion of their property transaction, with £1 going towards the £500 monthly lottery draw and £9 collecting Gift Aid, making every donation a minimum of £11.25 for the charity.

“This is a fantastic competition and one that all conveyancing firms can take part in. The competition is very easy to implement – a full tool-kit and details of how the competition works is available on the Foundation website at:
