We had a grand total of 22 teams signed up with the biggest teams on the day coming from Squire Patton Boggs and Leeds PSU!
A big congratulations goes out to Leeds PSU, who topped the fundraising table having raised over £800! This is a huge achievement and we are very grateful to our team who pulled out all the stops to raise as much money as possible to support access to justice.
We were joined by five charities, BPP University Pro Bono Centre, Citizens Advice Leeds, Leeds PSU, Manuel Bravo Project, and the University of Huddersfield Legal Advice Clinic. Charities like these are often the last resort for people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances and find themselves unable to pay for private legal advice. The funds raised by the Leeds Legal Walk, and the YLST as a whole, will go to support these charities and more, throughout the region helping thousands of people every year navigate the complicated legal system.
This event ended with a welcoming finish line reception. It was a perfect end to a great walk and the drinks were very well received by our thirsty walkers.
The walk has broken all previous records, raising just under £5,400 so far. Without your contribution the Leeds Legal Walk and the work of the YLST would not be possible.
