Newton Stewart solicitors McCormick & Nicholson ran another successful ‘Willing to Help’ scheme this year, after asking their clients if they were Willing to Help.

Under the scheme, they invited clients to make a Will with them and instead of charging a fee the clients were asked to make a donation to a local charity or cause. This year’s scheme was in favour of Newton Stewart Museum.

A spokesperson for the solicitors said: “Staff at McCormick & Nicholson are now delighted to report that, thanks to the generosity of their clients, they have raised £3,600 in aid of Newton Stewart Museum. This donation will help towards the running of the Museum in providing a great place of interest to visit both for locals and visitors alike. Thank you to all our clients who contributed to such a worthy cause.”

Details of the opening times and prices for the Museum are as follows:

March 31 to June 30: 2pm - 5pm
