Legal Walk is almost upon us! There's still time for you to join and you can register here.
We currently have 9 teams signed up and a total of 45 walkers, with our biggest team coming from Taylor Walton LLP, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Rayden Solicitors team who have so far raised £360! This is a fantastic achievement and has played an important part of making this year’s St Albans Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far the Walk has raised just over £1,100 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 St Albans Legal Walk help thousands of people every year gain 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 Citizens Advice St Albans District walking with us on Monday 12 September, who will be fundraising for their own organisation. 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 St Albans Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic event and this year we are running a raffle, so whether or not you are walking you can still take part! Please see here for more details.
A big thank you also to our wonderful sponsors Galio Jewellers and Sarah-J Coaching 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. Thanks also to the Hertfordshire Law Society, as well as the local businesses who have donated to the raffle this year.
See you all next week!
