19 teams turned up, eager to walk and talk for the benefit of the pro-bono legal aid initiatives established in the North East region, including and surrounding Newcastle. It was a pleasure for the walk to also be attended by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Linda Wright, as well as our two lead walkers: Chris Hugill, Vice Presidenet of the Newcastle Law Society, and Nick Kinaid, the Deputy VP.
No matter how little, or large, all donations are gratefully received. Each and every penny raised, get's returned to the community, going to free legal advice agencies which work to provide support to those who would otherwise have no access to the legal care they require.
