We had a grand total of 12 teams sign up, with the biggest team on the day coming from Suffolk Law Advice Service.
A big congratulations also goes out to Suffolk Law Advice Service and Attwells Solicitors, who topped the fundraising table, each raising over £400. This is a huge achievement and we are very grateful to these teams for pulling out all the stops to raise as much money as possible to support access to justice.
The event was held in partnership with the ISCRE and Suffolk Law Advice Service who also joined the walk in order to fundraise for their organisation. The advice service is often the last resort for local people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances without the means to pay for private legal advice. The funds raised by the Ipswich Legal Walk, and the ELST as a whole, will go to support the Law Advice Service as well as other organisations, that work throughout the region and help thousands of people every year navigate the complicated legal system.
This event was supported by our generous sponsors, Birketts and Suffolk and North East Law Society, who sponsored the welcoming finish line reception. Thanks also to Nick Barber Architects for sponsoring some well-deserved mid-way ice creams!
The walk has broken all previous records, raising over £1790 so far. Without your contribution the Ipswich Legal Walk and the work of the ELST would not be possible.
Please continue to fundraise and ensure that we can help more vital services than ever before.
