Derby Legal Walk - See you in 2021!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Derby Junior Lawyers Division and the Derby and District Law Society for organising the Derby Legal Walk and to all of our walkers for raising funds. In 2019, the walk raised over £1000 for local free legal advice services.
Why not get involved? If you would like to volunteer and assist in putting the Derby Legal Walk together in 2021 please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why do we walk?
The need for free legal advice centres has grown in the past few years. The recession has increased poverty and reduced support services. Meanwhile funding for the advice centres themselves has reduced.
The organisations we support:
Why should you take part?
We simply can’t overcome the effects of the huge reduction in government and local authority funding over the past few years. What we can do is to ensure that many of the people most in need get help who would otherwise have been denied.
By taking part in the Derby Legal Walk and seeking sponsorship from your friends, family and colleagues, you will be helping to secure vital funds needed for this important cause.
What will happen on the day?
Registration will be open between 5.00pm and 5.30pm and we ask that all participants report to register before having a photograph taken with our lead walkers. Once this has been done you are ready to set off on the 10km walk and we wish you the best of luck!
We will be running a photography challenge and encourage you to enter by tweeting your photographs from the event @MidlandLST using the hashtag #legalwalk.
The post-walk celebration will begin upon your arrival at the end venue and we would like to invite you to join us for a complementary drink to celebrate your enormous success!
