42 Bedford Row are delighted to have signed up to the London Legal Walk 2022. The team will be walking 10k on Tuesday 28th June in support of frontline free legal advice services.
Our team so far are:
We are walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust which funds Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London.
We will also be supporting Advocate and the Free Representation Unit (FRU) with the funds raised.
Two-thirds of the UK population don't know how to get legal advice and 14 million people who live in poverty can't afford to pay for it. The London Legal Walk raises vital funds to ensure access to justice for some of our communities' most poor and vulnerable people.
Your support is needed now more than ever with the long-term challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Reduced funding in the charity sector means advice agencies are doing all they can to meet rising need despite a drastically restricted income.
The event supports over 100 legal advice agencies in London and the South East. We know that these agencies do a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, fighting discrimination and exploitation.
