We completed our 10km sponsored walk yesterday in 1.5 hours. The walk was to raise money for hard pressed legal advice and support charities in Yorkshire and the North East with all the money raised going to agencies that facilitate access to justice for the poorest and most disadvantaged members of society, providing free legal help to people facing problems such as homelessness, debt, employment and family issues.
We were joined by Claire Rolston, Empoyment Lawyer with CLR Law, and around 100 other legal professionals in Leeds, including Leeds University, BPP Law School and the following law firms; Irwin Mitchell, Mills & Reeve, DLA Piper and DWF. The walk commenced at Leeds Combined Court and finished at Revolution in the Electric Press, passing The Yorkshire Post, Leeds Canal, Royal Armouries and The Calls. We were very lucky with the weather, especially considering how grim and wet it was the previous and preceding day.
We are still accepting sponsors, if you can spare something towards this worthwhile charity, please click on the link below.
