10,000+ Expected To Join The London Legal Walk In June

Legal Futures reports

Get ready to step up for a good cause! On June 13th, more than 10,000 walkers will be hitting the pavement for the biggest London Legal Walk yet! This annual event, organised by the London Legal Support Trust (LLST) in its 19th year, is on track to have more teams and walkers than ever before.

This sponsored walk spans 10km through London, all in the name of fundraising to support free legal advice agencies in London and the South East. This year’s goal is to raise a whopping one million pounds, which will provide a much-needed injection of funding for a sector that is struggling to keep up with demand.

The pandemic has hit the legal advice sector hard, exacerbating existing funding gaps and increasing demand for services by up to 48% in some cases. A report by the Community Justice Fund (2023) highlights that the funding gap for the sector has doubled from £15m to £30m in the last year alone.

This year’s London Legal Walk is more important than ever, and every step counts. The money raised will be used to sustain free specialist legal advice agencies and charities, providing crucial support to those in need. It’s a unique opportunity to come together as a community and make a tangible difference in the lives of others.

So, grab your walking shoes and join us on June 13th for an evening of fundraising and fun! Whether you’re walking as part of a team or as an individual, your participation and support are invaluable. Let’s make this year’s London Legal Walk the biggest and most successful yet!
