Legal Walk is almost upon us! There's still time for you to join and you can register here.
We currently have 50 teams signed up and a total of 187 walkers, with our biggest teams coming from DAC Beachcroft and CMS Cameron McKenna, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Avon and Bristol Law Centre team who have so far raised £335.00! This is a fantastic achievement and has played an important part of making this year’s Bristol Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far the Walk has raised £3,408 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 Bristol 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 several charities walking with us on Monday 26 September, Somerset Community Care Matters, North Bristol Advice Centre, St Paul’s Advice Centre, PSU Bristol, CHAS Bristol, Talking Money, ACFA: The Advice Network, Bristol Child Poverty Action Group, Shelter Bristol, WE Care and Repair, The Wellbeing Partnership C.I.C and the various Citizens Advice offices in and around Bristol. 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 Bristol Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening with a celebratory drink provided at the finish line.
A big thank you also to our wonderful sponsors Irwin Mitchell and bSquared Costs Law 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 South West Legal Support Trust.
