The London Legal Support Trust (LLST) is overjoyed to be welcoming over 8,500 walkers to the streets of central London again today!
The highly anticipated 2021 London Legal Walk, fundraises for frontline free legal advice agencies in London and the South East and these charities need additional funding now more than ever due to the extreme hardship and disruption brought on by the pandemic.
Nezahat Cihan, CEO of the London Legal Support Trust, commented, “We are delighted the day has finally come and we can meet with our wonderful teams, supporters, sponsors and volunteers who all make this event happen. The funds raised by the London Legal Walk are an essential lifeline to many of the agencies we support. Over 100 legal advice agencies have closed since the pandemic and we are constantly striving to help prevent any more closures and cuts in services. Thank you to everyone who is joining us at the London Legal Walk – we hope you enjoy it!”
Teams will be taking on a 10k route to walk (or run) in central London (or closer to their home if unable to make it to the event), starting and finishing, at Carey Street and closing with a street party.
A number of Covid-19 safety measures have been put in place and the support and enthusiasm from the 680 teams signed up has been amazing, with the charity hoping to exceed £500,000.
