Walk for justice: over £500,000 raised for legal advice sector

This year’s London Legal Walk raised over £575,000 for charities that provide free legal advice in London and the South East. Over 7,500 lawyers signed up to the 10km sponsored walk – including Team Justice Gap (Kim Evans, Jules Carey, Joanna Goodman and Mary Rachel McCabe above).

The walk is in aid of the not-for-profit legal advice sector which has been hit hard by recent reductions in council funding as well as the £220 million legal aid cuts announced in April this year.

Well done to Team Justice Gap –  walkers (Ramanjit Kang, Kim Evans, Joanna Goodman, Ajeet Minhas, Stef Shields, Jules Carey, Jane Zacharzewski,  Jeremy Hopkins, Mary-Rachel McCabe, Russel Fraser, Jon Harman,  Louise Restell, Lucinda Acland, Katy Robson and Paul Bird, Christina Pieri, Wendy Boast) and supporters – which raised £1,359.16.

Thanks to Riverview Law for sponsoring the T-shirts for a second year!

Thanks to Jon Harman at the College of Law who made this video.

    Groovy video! Kick ass music, but the tune I was singing on the walk was:Fats Domino – I’m Walking. Have a listen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOR1OkwiBCY
    Well done all those lawyers who went on this 10km walk after a hard days work. I was with the Liberty team and we were all aching when we finally arrived at the Law Society for our free glass of wine. Excellent wine by the way! I could have downed a bottle of that! The jugglers, stilt walking police and hedge people were great fun.

    P.S. I’m not a lawyer and I met several non-lawyers who did that walk. I met a fellow philosophy graduate at the Law Society.
