Guildford Legal Walk 2020

Regional Walk Website Banners

Registration is now open for the Guildford Legal Walk 2020. Sign up below.

The Guildford Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk through the Surrey countryside. 

Funds raised by the walk will help hundreds of the poorest people in the County which is currently a legal aid "desert" for all areas of social welfare law with no legal aid for housing, community care, or any other social welfare areas of law

Due to social distancing measures, this year teams will walk in groups of 6 or less walkers. There will be no set start or end venue. Teams start wherever and whenever convenient for them on the route. 

In addition to walkers walking the route, those who can't get in to Guildford are invited to join their team anyway and walk their 10k wherever they are.

The important thing is that we raise as much as possible for the advice agencies who are struggling to maintain services with the increased challenges created by COVID 19 and the lockdown. 

The number of people seeking help with Debt, Benefits and Employment has increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic. Those seeking help with Domestic Violence has also risen sharply  and , in September, when the stay on evictions is lifted there will be a "tsunami" of people facing homelessness.

So please join the walk, on the route or remotely,  and raise as much as you can.

The current Covid-19 government guidance on meeting in groups states that you should only meet with people you do not live with in three types of groups: up to six people in an outdoor space, single adult households, or a group of two households in any location.

Social distancing measures must be maintained at all times.

It is against the law for gatherings of more than 6 people to take place in private homes (including gardens and other outdoor spaces), or in a public outdoors space, except for in certain circumstances as listed on the government website. If gathering in a group please ensure that social distancing is maintained - if you are meeting in your office follow your organisation's Covid-19 risk assessment policies.

Please be aware that the Guildford Legal Walk route will not have marshals. Responsibility for safe social distancing lies with the individual.
