Legal Walk is almost upon us! There's still time for you to join: register here.
We currently have 11 teams signed up and a total of 57 walkers, with our biggest teams coming from Gotelee Solicitors and Kerseys, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Suffolk Law Advice Centre (ISCRE) team who have so far raised a fantastic £124! This is a fantastic achievement and a hugely important part of making this year’s Ipswich Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far the Walk has raised just under £340 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 Ipswich 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 27 June, Ipswich Housing Action Group and the Suffolk Law Advice Centre (ISCRE). 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 Ipsiwch Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening with a celebratory drink provided at the finish line by our supporters the Suffolk Law Advice Centre (ISCRE) and the Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equity.
A big thank you also to our wonderful sponsors Birketts, Nick Barber Architects
and the Suffolk and North Essex Law Society, who are supporting and promoting our event. As we need sponsorship in order to be able to continue running our legal walk events their support is invaluable and key to continuing the work of the Eastern Legal Support Trust.
