We were extremely pleased to find out that the Southampton Legal Walk, which took place on the 9th May 2016 raised over £6,000.  Our Associate Julia Prior, joined by three other colleagues took part in the annual event, which aims to raise money to ensure that more local people have access to the support and advice they need.

The Southampton Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk around Southampton to raise money for local legal advice services in and around the South West. A number of local law firms and legal professionals participated, gathering in sponsorship to help raise money for this worthy cause.

The need for free legal advice centres has grown in the past few years, however funding for the advice centres themselves has reduced. The South West Legal Support Trust said that, "We simply can't overcome the effects of the huge reduction in government and local authority funding over the past few years. What we can do is to ensure that many of the people most in need get help who would otherwise have been denied."

Julia said, "The event was a lot of fun and thankfully the weather held out and we maintained a good pace throughout the course. I'd encourage colleagues to take part next year as it’s a great cause and strengthens our relationships with the local community".

Well done to all who participated across the South!
