We had a grand total of 25 teams signed up with the biggest teams on the day coming from Ward Hadaway and Sintons!
A big congratulations goes out to Parklane Plowden Chambers, who topped the fundraising table having raised just under £950! This is a huge achievement and we are very grateful to our team who pulled out all the stops to raise as much money as possible to support access to justice.
We were joined by five charities, Sunderland Student Law Clinic, North East Law Centre, Newcastle Personal Support Unit, MLST and Citizens Advice Newcastle. These charities are often the last resort for people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances and find themselves unable to pay for private legal advice. The funds raised by the Newcastle Legal Walk, and the NELST as a whole, will go to support these charities and more, throughout the region helping thousands of people every year navigate the complicated legal system.
This event ended with a welcoming finish line reception. It was a perfect end to a great walk and the drinks were very well received by our thirsty walkers.
The walk has broken all previous records, raising over £4,408 so far. Without your contribution the Newcastle Legal Walk and the work of the NELST would not be possible.
Please continue to fundraise and ensure that we can help more vital services than ever before.
