LONDON LEGAL WALK

This year saw the 10th anniversary of the London Legal Walk and the addition of 9 King’s Bench Walk to the ranks of those participating for 2014.

The purpose of our efforts was to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust, the Free Representation Unit and the Bar Pro Bono Unit. These agencies do a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly and disabled and fighting exploitation. With this in mind, combined with the current cuts to legal aid, sixteen of our members took to the streets of London in order to show their solidarity and support for such worthwhile organisations.

I am delighted to announce that the evening was a huge success – in part due to the absence of rain and furthered by the lack of casualties from Team 9 KBW. The 10k route passed with delightful speed as the team members were granted plenty of twilight photo opportunities which included sights of the Thames, St James’s Park, Buckingham Place, Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the event – it was a delight to walk alongside you all. My further thanks go to everyone who sponsored Team 9 KBW, your efforts have enabled us to raise as much as £715.00 and are greatly appreciated.
