The 2018 London Legal Walk
Date: 21 May 2018
Join us in walking for justice.
The annual London Legal Walk, organised by the London Legal Support Trust, is an opportunity for legal firms, chambers and companies to support free legal advice centres in the capital and the South East.
The walk is a scenic circular 10km route through Central London. There will be two walking routes to choose from - either through some of the London parks or along the River side - before ending in a huge street party on Carey Street.
The 2018 walk will take place on Monday 21st May. Team Toynbee will be leaving our offices (52 Old Castle Street, E1 7AJ) at 5pm, but will have someone at the Carey Street start line from 4pm.
By giving via our Virgin Money Giving page, all funds you raise to go towards Toynbee Hall’s Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC).
Why we walk
FLAC Volunteer Sabrina tells why this is such an important cause.
Toynbee Hall's Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC), believed to be the oldest continuously running pro bono advice centre in the world, is currently celebrating its 120th anniversary. Throughout this time, FLAC has and continues to serve the most in need people in East London and throughout London, offering access to justice for those who would not otherwise be able to afford legal support.
Rising demand for free legal advice across London and substantial cuts throughout the sector has made us acutely aware of the need to secure FLAC’s future, and ensure in can continue to support to those in need for years to come.
We'd love you to join our team and help us in raising funds for FLAC! Please contact Phoebe Walker: firstname.lastname@example.org; 0207 392 2970 if you’d be interested in walking with us on the 21st. Friends, family, children and pets are all welcome! Alternatively, if you can't join us on the day but would like to make a donation, you can do so on our sponsorship page.
In a law firm and want to set up a team?
If you're in a law firm, you could register your own team. It is free to register your team through the London Legal Support Trust. A Virgin Money Giving page will be set up for your team to ensure all of the money you raise goes towards keeping legal advice free to people in need across London and the South East. You can also designate a proportion of the funds you raise to go towards Toynbee Hall’s Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC) – please contact email@example.com if you’d like to do this.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with Phoebe Walker - firstname.lastname@example.org; 0207 392 2970.
