Support Justice for All by Paddling Down the Thames!

Last Updated on: 22nd November 2023, 06:00 am

With just under three weeks to go until London Legal Support Trust hosts their 15th annual Walk the Thames event on October 14th, the legal community have been invited to join Lord Justice Haddon-Cave and Sir Peter Gross in walking or running either a half or full marathon along the banks of the Thames.

The event has raised a total of £400,000 since its inception, all of which goes towards free specialist legal advice agencies. Teams are encouraged to come together and take part in the event, combining social activism and mindfulness in order to fundraise for the vital work of London Legal Support Trust and the agencies they support.

Trust for London’s poverty profile demonstrates the necessity of the event, with 27% of Londoners living in poverty and 53% of single parents living in poverty after housing costs. Sarah Cashman, Fundraising Manager at Age UK Hammersmith & Fulham, commented: “We’re really excited to be taking part in Walk the Thames for the first time this year. The money raised will support older people in Hammersmith & Fulham to access free advice. With the cost-of-living crisis continuing to have an impact, particularly on older people, whatever they raise will make a huge difference. We’re sure it’ll be a great day.”

London Legal Support Trust’s Walk the Thames event is another step towards helping advice agencies meet the needs of their users, who often have a range of complex needs in today’s climate.
