London Legal Walk 2018
On Monday May 21st 2018, Hackney Community Law Centre will be participating in the 2018 London Legal Walk organised by the London Legal Support Trust. The London Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk around some of London’s legal landmarks.
This will be the walk's 14th anniversary. In 2017 12,000 people took on 10k for justice, raising a record breaking £800,000. It is (probably!) the largest annual gathering of lawyers in the world. Walking in teams as their court, law firm or chambers, law college or in-house legal department, walkers raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for agencies who provide free legal advice to those in desperate need and who cannot afford to pay for services that assist, for example:
- young people in poverty;
- homeless people;
- trafficked women and children;
- those with mental illnesses; and
- older or disabled people needing community care.
In the past, the money raised has even helped to create new services in boroughs where none existed.
HCLC's fundraising page is now open for donations. We would be grateful if you would consider supporting our clients, community and the continuing work of Hackney Community Law Centre by sponsoring our London Legal Walk HERE.
