Southampton Legal Walk – Monday 14th September 2020

Registration is now closed for the Southampton Virtual Legal Walk 2020.

Thank you so much to everyone who took on a virtual 10km for justice! So far you have raised over £4,000 for free specialist legal advice services in Southampton.

 

The Southampton Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk which supports free frontline legal advice agencies in Southampton and on the Isle of Wight.

This year the walk was a bit different to normal as, due to social distancing measures, there was no set route; teams joined with others from all over the South East of England on the 5th October to take part in the virtual  London Legal Walk 10x Challenge. Teams of colleagues could still choose to walk together in socially distanced groups of six or less, with some also taking on individual challenges.

Why We Walk
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 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.
Taking part in the Southampton Legal Walk raises vital funds for local advice agencies Citizens Advice SouthamptonCitizens Advice Isle of WightCitizens Advice Winchester, and Citizens Advice New Forest.
