Southampton Legal Walk
The Southampton Legal Walk joins the London Legal Support Trust!
The Southampton Legal Walk is a 10km after work walk that raises funds for legal advice agencies in Southampton and Hampshire .
The 2018 Southampton Legal Walk will be on June 25th starting at 5.30.p m.
The 2017 walk raised over £3,000 for local legal advice charities. Walkers in the 2018 walk will hope to beat that great total.
Bob Nightingale, commended the lawyers for supporting local advice agencies saying: -
"In recent years life has become even harder for the most disadvantaged people. Austerity has caused hardship among the poorest people and created problems such as debt and homelessness. Often the advice agencies are the only place where those people can get help.
"2013 cuts to legal aid for many areas of welfare law mean that people who can't afford to pay a solicitor can no longer turn to high street solicitors for help with matters such as benefits, employment or disrepair. Now changes to the benefits rules for people with disabilities is creating even more pressure on the advice agencies.
It's fantastic that local lawyers will turn out year after year to raise funds to help to ease that problem,"
