Women in Wills hosted their second in person event of the year in Birmingham at Hotel Du Vin. With guest speakers Helen Forster – HTF Legal Limited and Sarah Walker – Weightmans.

Members made their way to Birmingham to enjoy a fantastic lunch, network with other women working within the Wills and Probate sector.

Alongside our fantastic guest speakers we had a brilliant group discussion on mental health. Reflecting on Mental Health Awareness Week that took place the week before we discussed what ‘poor mental health’ can look like and ways in which we can combat destructive thinking and behaviours.  We heard from some brave members of our group who shared their experience with mental health. The response and atmosphere demonstrated how supportive Women in Wills networking group is, with many members offering to be part of a SOS service to be called upon in times of need.

The afternoon finished with a charity raffle for MIND – a mental health awareness charity, the group raised over £200 in support.
