We currently have 11 teams signed up and a total of 38 walkers, with our biggest teams coming from the Yorkshire Law Society and Harrowells, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful University of York - School of Law team who have so far raised a fantastic £320! This is a fantastic achievement and a hugely important part of making this year’s York Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far the Walk has raised almost £1000 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 York Legal Walk help thousands of people every year gain proper 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 a charity walking with us on Monday 25, the Welfare Benefits Unit. 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 York Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening and it will be topped off with a celebratory drink near the finish line.
We need your 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 Yorkshire Legal Support Trust.
A big thank you also to our wonderful supporters York Junior Lawyers and The Yorkshire Law Society who are promoting our event.
