On Monday May 20th 2013, Hackney Community Law Centre participated in the 2013 London Legal Walk organised by the London Legal Support Trust. Last year’s walk saw more than 6000 people take part and more than £500,000 raised!
The London Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk around some of London’s legal landmarks. It is (probably!) the largest annual gathering of lawyers in the world.
Walking in teams as their court, law firm or chambers, law college or in-house legal department, walkers raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for agencies who provide free legal advice to those in desperate need and who cannot afford to pay for services that assist, for example, young people in poverty, homeless people, trafficked women and children, those with mental illnesses, older or disabled people needing community care. In the past, the money raised has even helped to create new services in boroughs where none existed.
Our fundraising page is still open for donations. We would very grateful if you would support the continuing work of Hackney Community Law Centre by sponsoring our 2013 London Legal Walk HERE.
