Exciting news here at the North West Legal Support Trust! We are holding our next Legal Walk in Preston on the 24th April @ 5.30pm, and with just over 5 weeks to go before the big day (or evening, I should say) there is still plenty of time to come together with your colleagues or friends and get involved for a great cause.
Registration starts from 5pm at the Preston Combined Court. The event will conclude at University of Central Lancaster where, upon finishing the route there will be the opportunity to have some well-deserved refreshments. A special thanks to the University who has kindly allowed us to host our post-walk reception in their facilities. Don’t forget to enter our photography challenge with your photos from the event. Tweet us @nwlst using the hashtag #legalwalk we look forward to seeing your submissions after the event.
Reduction in Government and Local Authority spending has impacted the most vulnerable people in our communities, preventing access to legal advice for those who need it most. Our fundraising events such as the Preston 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 Preston on 24th April!
Talking of baking, our recent Legal Bake fundraiser held during February was a great success! Raising an incredible £30,000 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. To find out more about is currently happening, be sure to tune into BBC Radio Lancashire next Wednesday @ 9.50am. Rachel Stevens, Trustee for the North West Legal Support Trust, will be on talking about recent developments in ensuring access to justice for all.
