Starting at 5.30pm from Southampton Crown Court, the 10k route can be walked at your own pace! Upon completion of the route there will be the opportunity to all come together and have some well-deserved refreshments. Additionally, we are holding a photography challenge during the walk so please remember to take some photographs and share them with us afterwards @SouthWestLST using the hashtag #legalwalk.
We are fundraising because a reduction in Government and Local Authority spending has impacted the most vulnerable people in our communities, preventing access to legal advice for those who desperately need it. Our fundraising events such as the Southampton Legal Walk and the recent Great Legal Bake, are of vital importance to support continued provision of services and overcome the damaging impacts of funding cuts. Help us help those who need legal advice, walk with us in Southampton on Monday 8th May!
Talking of baking, our recent Legal Bake fundraiser held during February was a great success! Raising an incredible £33,000 across all Support Trusts in the UK. The money raised in each area will be used to keep legal advice free and available to all.
We are always looking for more teams to get involved, and now that the days are getting longer and (hopefully) warmer there is no excuse! So if you enjoy walking and supporting great causes this is for you. If you haven’t signed up yet, not to worry, follow the link and enter a team today! Together we can help support local legal advice agencies. --> www.swlst.org.uk/southampton-legal-walk
