Description: London Legal Walk
The biggest fundraising event in the legal calendar is fast approaching and there are now over 500 teams (and counting) signed up for the London Legal Walk on Monday 18 October 2021.
Organised by the London Legal Support Trust (LLST), the money raised from the walk helps to fund frontline free legal advice agencies in London and the South East. LLST is built on the belief that everyone in society, regardless of demographic, should have access to good quality legal advice and, aligned with LAG, is committed to improving access to justice.
This year, there are three 10 km routes to choose from (and an accessible route), all taking in some of our capital’s most beautiful landmarks. For those who are still working remotely, or unable to get to central London, there is the option to walk a 10 km route in their local area as part of the event.
The London Legal Walk is generously supported by The Law Society of England and Wales, and its president, I. Stephanie Boyce, is one of the lead walkers. She commented:
I look forward to seeing you all at the London Legal Walk on 18 October. For the first time in over two years, the whole of the legal profession will be able to walk together (albeit maintaining a bit of distance) to raise funds for free legal advice charities. Over the intervening two years, the number of people needing legal help, particularly with debt and benefits, has risen dramatically. So may I urge everyone to raise as much as possible on their fundraising web pages to support the charities that help people in crisis.
How you can help
To join a fantastic community of fundraisers, sign up via the LLST website or email the events team at: signups@llst.org.uk. The deadline for signing up is Friday 8 October 2021.
