We currently have 10 teams signed up and a total of 85 walkers, with our biggest teams coming from Senate House Chambers and Shoosmiths, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Borneo Martell Turner Coulston LLP team who have so far raised a fantastic £464! This is a fantastic achievement and a hugely important part of making this year’s Northampton Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far the Walk has raised just under £1,300 altogether. This is a great start but we still need everyone to continue fundraising as much as possible to support local advice charities.
The charities supported by the Northampton Legal Walk help thousands of people every year gain proper access to justice. These charities are often the last resort for people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances but without the resources to pay for private legal advice. Without this charitable work many vulnerable people would be left alone to navigate the court and justice system without any advice or support.
We’re proud to have two charities walking with us on Monday 25, Central and East Northamptonshire Citizens Advice Bureau and Age UK Northamptonshire. Please help us to continue to support the vital work they do in the local community by raising as much as you can at the Northampton Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening with a celebratory drink provided at the finish line by our sponsors Hewitsons.
A big thank you also to our other wonderful supporters the Northamptonshire Law Society. We need sponsorship and support in order to be able to continue running our legal walk events their support is invaluable and key to continuing the work of the Midlands Legal Support Trust. Thank you.
