Northampton Legal Walk 2021
The Northampton Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk around Northampton and the surrounding area to raise money for local advice services.
This year, we are thrilled to be joined by the High Sherriff of Northamptonshire 2021- 2022, Amanda Lowther DL and the under Sheriff Dominic Hopkins, who will start off the 10K route.
Please join us to raise funds for our local free legal advice charities who deliver essential advice on matters such as domestic abuse, employment and housing.
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 Northampton 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?
**Please note that the organisers will be following government guidelines continuously throughout the pandemic and arrangements are subject to change.**
We hope to welcome the Northampton Legal Walk in person keeping all participants safe. Registration will be open between 5.00pm and 5.30pm at the Northampton Court Centre 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 and a buffet to celebrate your enormous success!
