We had a grand total of 11 teams signed up with the biggest teams on the day coming from York JLD and Pryers Solicitors!
A big congratulations goes out to Harrowells, who topped the fundraising table having raised over £615! 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 a charity, Welfare Benefits Unit. This charity, and others 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 York 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 was supported by York JLD and the Yorksire Law Society who sponsored the welcoming finish line reception. It was a perfect end to a great walk and the drinks were very well received by our thirsty walkers.
This legal walk was the first of its kind in York raising over £2,400 so far. This is a fantastic achievement and we strive to beat this next year. Without your contribution the York Legal Walk and the work of the YLST would not be possible.
Please continue to fundraise and ensure that we can help more vital services than ever before.
