Liverpool Legal Walk goes virtual
This Walk was due to take place on 6th October 2020 however due to the ongoing COVID situation, the decision has been taken by the NWLST (North West Legal Support Trust) trustees to move this event online with the support of the Access to Justice Foundation. The Liverpool Legal Walk in 2020 will be a virtual walk that fundraisers can take part in at a time to suit them and of a distance that suits them. Traditionally the Walk has been a 5km sponsored walk around the city to raise money for local advice services that provide legal aid to vulnerable people in our society. The need for legal advice support clinics have grown within recent years, and funding for these clinics has reduced. The Liverpool Legal Walk is an annual event that has continuously celebrated the work of the legal profession and advice sector in protecting individual rights and ensuring access to justice for all.
NWLST supports organisations that:
- Prevent families being made homeless
- Prevent destitution
- Help older people gain the support to which they are entitled
- Help women and children who have been trafficked for domestic servitude or prostitution.
The annual legal walk makes an incredible difference to social welfare in our community, and last year a fantastic £6362.81 was raised to support the cause. It is now more important than ever to keep raising funds. We are hoping as many members, friends and colleagues as possible will take part in this initiative.
It doesn’t matter if you are running, skipping, cycling, walking, or even hopping dressed as a kangaroo, sign up to ensure that everyone, no matter who they are, can get the vital support of advice agencies at this critical time.
Together our target is to complete 20,000 miles by the end of 2020. Will you help us?
