Lord Hodge, the Lord High Commissioner who grew up in Perthshire and had some fond memories of his time spent at Crieff Hydro during family breaks, was welcomed by Stephen Leckie, Lord-Lieutenant of Perth and Kinross.  

Lord Hodge attended a reception at the hotel where he had the opportunity to hear more about the work of several local groups. The groups included community reuse charity Remake Crieff, Christians Against Poverty, Letham4all, Riding for the Disabled, Scottish Prison Services, Messy Church Comrie and Appletree Community.

Stephen Leckie, Chairman and CEO of Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: “There are so many fantastic groups and charities in Perthshire which aim to support our local communities.

“It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to host this meeting during which Lord Hodge had the opportunity to meet the people behind some of these organisations and hear about the amazing work they do first-hand.”

Lord Hodge is Deputy President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and was appointed to represent The Queen as Lord High Commissioner to the Church of Scotland’s 2022 General Assembly.

Perthshire law firm Macnabs awarded for Will Aid effort

Macnabs, a leading law firm in Perthshire has raised more than £10,000 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign where lawyers generously give up their time for free to write Wills for local people in exchange for a donation. Macnabs has taken part in the annual Will Aid scheme for the sixth time and raised an impressive £10,795 this year in the month-long fundraiser, making them the highest fundraising firm in Perthshire and second-highest in Scotland. This is the 6th year Macnabs has taken part, raising a fantastic £33,079 to date. Partner Althea Kennedy comments: “At Macnabs we know that Will Aid helps such worthwhile causes and for us to be part of that and to give something back has been wonderful. Over the past few years we’ve raised more and more and have seen so many of our clients benefiting from the campaign. It is so important that people make a Will – without one the law decides how your estate is passed on, and this might not be in line with your wishes. “We have also signed up for the 2017 campaign and appointments are filling up fast, so if you would like to make your Will this November, please do get in touch. It is very easy to make a Will – and it will save your family unnecessary distress at an already difficult time.” Andrea Hay, Partner and Head of the Private Client team, adds: “Even if you already have a Will, it is important to update it every 3-5 years, especially if your circumstances have changed. If you now have children or grandchildren, if you are recently divorced or separated, or have a Partner but are not legally married, or if perhaps a beneficiary named in your Will has deceased, then make sure your Will reflects what you want to happen when you die.”
