Hilary Cragg

PMZ Trustee

Solicitor and Partner specialising in Elderly Client Law at Nash & Co Solicitors LLP.



What do you do for PMZ?
I am a Trustee and work with their team to promote their fantastic work. I am a solicitor and partner of Nash & Co solicitors and professionally I head up the Vulnerable Client team. I’m also on the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge team helping raise awareness and understanding around dementia. I bring all my professional skills to assist PMZ with its work.

Do you play any instruments?
Sadly the only instruments that I play are air drums or air guitar, but when I do I am note perfect at both!! I listen to music in my car, home & when out running, so I appreciate the importance of music in my life.

What musical instrument would best describe you and why?
Ooh tricky question ? Drums for when I’m loud, harp for when I’m classical and electric guitar for when I feeling funky or trendy (whatever that means). Does that mean that I’m a very strange band?!!

What has music done for you in your life?
Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. As a kid I can remember sitting in my bedroom listening to the chart rundown. Music has a fantastic effect on my mood, so I play different music depending on my mood or if I want to change my mood. Music has been a fantastically useful tool for when I don’t have the words for how I feel, but some clever songwriter does.

What’s the best bit about supporting PMZ?
Seeing the great work that the team does and how they make a difference, it brings a tear to my eye!

What’s the first record/CD you ever bought?
I honestly can’t remember, the Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever was definitely one of the first.
