Legal Walk is almost upon us! There's still time for you to join and you can register here.
We currently have 32 teams signed up and a total of 226 walkers, with our biggest teams coming from 18 St John Street Chambers and DWF – Manchester, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Olliers Solicitors team who have so far raised £736.25! This is a fantastic achievement and has played an important part of making this year’s Manchester Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far the Walk has raised just under £2,500 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 Manchester 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 walking with us on Thursday 29 September, Rochdale Law Centre and the University of Law – Manchester. 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 Manchester Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening with a celebratory drink provided at the finish line by our supporter the Manchester Law Society.
A big thank you also to our wonderful sponsor Actis Legal who is 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 North West Legal Support Trust.
