London Legal Walk 2021 – Support the University of Hertfordshire Team

12/10/2021 | Uncategorised

A team from the University of Hertfordshire will be taking on 10k on Monday 18 October in support of frontline free legal advice services.

The team is: Julie Manson, Diana Kirsch, Penny Carey, Liz Wilde, Emma Hooper, Amanda Thurston, Danon Pritchard, Maureen Johnson, Modupe Smith, Geraldine Poulain, Matthew Weait

They will be walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust which funds Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London.

Two-thirds of the UK population don’t know how to get legal advice and 14 million people who live in poverty can’t afford to pay for it. The London Legal Walk raises vital funds to ensure access to justice for some of our communities’ most poor and vulnerable people.

Your support is needed now more than ever with the long-term challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Reduced funding in the charity sector means advice agencies are doing all they can to meet rising need despite a drastically restricted income.

The event supports over 100 legal advice agencies in London and the South East. We know that these agencies do a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, fighting discrimination and exploitation.

Please sponsor our walkers as generously as you are able. Click HERE to donate.

Many thanks for your support.
