Solicitors at Duncan Lewis Solicitors will be taking part in the tenth anniversary London Legal Walk on 19th May 2014 to raise funds for London’s legal centres.
Members of Duncan Lewis Solicitors will be joining thousands of solicitors taking part in the after-work hours 10km walk around Central London led by the Lord Chief Justice.
Funds raised through the event will be donated to support London’s legal advice centres.
This year’s London Legal Walk marks the 10-year anniversary of the event and organisers have aimed to make it the “biggest and best ever walk” in the events history.
Last year 7,500 volunteers took part in the event, which raised over £530,000. Organisers and participants hope that this year’s walk will “smash” last years record as “the need for funding is now far more great”.
Members of our team taking part in the walk include; Civil Litigations Director Anthony Okumah, Civil Litigations Solicitor Shilpa Sehgal and Housing Department Solicitor Shabana Masood.
Last year we raised an impressive £801.29, and aim to beat this record in this years walk. Donations and support for the walk through our fundraising page can be made by clicking here.
One of our team who is taking part; Anthony Okumah, Director of Civil Litigations had this to say about the event; “We are doing it in order to support not-for-profit free legal advice agencies who are now overwhelmed due to the drastic legal aid cuts"
