Let's talk about wills

We were delighted to be invited to talk with Laura Middleton-Hughes, a local blogger from Norfolk who has accumulated over 18,000 social media followers, and who through her own inspirational journey is raising awareness of incurable secondary breast cancer.

Laura, who goes by the Instagram name of @Baldbooblessandbeautiful, invited our Senior Associate, Rachel Chiarotti to her live Instagram following, to talk all things wills – from how much they cost to what happens after you die and how to ensure you can protect your assets. A full video version is available to view below.

Rachel, a solicitor in our Wills, Trusts & Probate department, commented: “I was delighted to be invited by Laura to chat to her followers, and hopefully provide some important information about wills and life planning.

Laura’s story is such an inspirational one, and she’s doing so much to talk proactively and positively about subjects around death and terminal illness that many find difficult to raise. I hope that our chat has helped many find the answers to the questions they had about making a will, but if anyone has any further questions, please do contact me and I’d be happy to help answer them.”

Laura, who has recently made her own will with Rachel, added: “It’s been a great opportunity to talk about the really important topic of wills. An area that generally people don’t talk about very often. I didn’t understand about them and Rachel has really helped me, and hopefully by answering our followers questions we have been able to support and provide key information to others.”
