Bristol Legal Walk 2021 – Thursday 30th September


Why do we walk?

The need for free legal advice centres has grown in the past few years. The recession has increased poverty and reduced support services. Meanwhile funding for the advice centres themselves has reduced.

The organisations we support:

  • Prevent families being made homeless
  • Prevent destitution
  • Help older people gain the support to which they are entitled
  • Help women and children who have been trafficked for domestic servitude or prostitution.

Why should you take part?

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.

By taking part in the Bristol Legal Walk and seeking sponsorship from your friends, family and colleagues, you will be helping to secure vital funds needed for this important cause.

What will happen on the day?

**Please note that the organisers will be following government guidelines continuously throughout the pandemic and arrangements are subject to change.**

​We hope to welcome the Birmingham Legal Walk in person keeping all participants safe.

Starting point: TBC
End Venue: TBC

Registration will be open at 5.30pm and we ask that all participants report to register before having a photograph taken with our lead walkers. Once this has been done you are ready to set off at 6pm on the 5km walk and we wish you the best of luck!

We will be running a photography challenge and encourage you to enter by tweeting your photographs from the event @SouthWestLST using the hashtag #legalwalk.

The post-walk celebration will begin upon your arrival at the end venue and we would like to invite you to join us for a complementary drink to celebrate your enormous success!
