We currently have 22 teams signed up and a total of over 180 walkers, with our biggest teams coming from Samuel Phillips & Co. and Sintons Law, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Parklane Plowden Chambers team who have so far raised a fantastic £620! This is a fantastic achievement and a hugely important part of making this year's Newcastle Legal Walk bigger and better than ever before.
So far, the walk has raised just under £2100 altogether. This is a great start but we still need everyone to continue fundraising as much as possible to support local advice charities.
The charities supported by the Newcastle Legal Walk help thousands of people every year gain proper access to justice. These charities are often the last resort for people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances but without resources to pay for private legal advice. Without this charitable work, many vulnerable people would be left alone to navigate the court and justice system without any advice or support.
We're proud to have several charities walking with us on Monday the 23rd, Citizens Advice Newcastle, North East Law Centre, Newcastle Personal Support Unit, and Sunderland Student Law Clinic. Please help us to continue to support the vital work they do in the local community by raising as much as you can in the Newcastle Legal Walks.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening. A reminder that event registration on the day is open from 5 pm with the walk starting at 5:30 pm. A celebratory drink will be waiting for you at the finish line.
We are very excited to see all of you on Monday the 23rd of May. The event would not be possible without your contribution.
