Oxford Legal Walk 2018

A big thank you to all who took on 10k for justice at the Oxford Legal Walk. Together, you have raised £13,000 (and counting).

The Oxford Legal Walk is a 10km after work walk that raises funds for legal advice agencies in Oxfordshire. The walk was led by HH Judge Vincent and the Sherriff of Oxford 

Bob Nightingale, founder of LLST, commended the lawyers for supporting local advice agencies saying:   

 "In recent years life has become even harder for the most disadvantaged people. Austerity has caused hardship among the poorest people and created problems such as debt and homelessness. Often the advice agencies are the only place where those people can get help. 

"2013 cuts to legal aid for many areas of welfare law mean that people who can't afford to pay a solicitor can no longer turn to high street solicitors for help with matters such as benefits, employment or disrepair. Now changes to the benefits rules for people with disabilities is creating even more pressure on the advice agencies.

It's fantastic that local lawyers will turn out year after year to raise funds to help to ease that problem,"

 A huge thank you to all of the teams who took part.
