Eastbourne Legal Walk – Tuesday 17 September

The Eastbourne Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk to raise vital funds for the provision of free legal advice in and around Eastbourne. 100% of the funds raised go directly to Citizens Advice Eastbourne

By taking part, you will be walking shoulder to shoulder with fellow members of the Eastbourne legal community. Law firms, barristers, chambers, advice agencies, in house legal departments, and university law groups will walk the breath-taking coastal route in unison, before enjoying a refreshing drinks reception provided by LLST.

Demand for legal advice services has risen dramatically over the past year. The rising cost of living has heaped immense pressure on legal advice agencies who are struggling to cope with such unprecedented demand. We believe everybody should be able to receive legal advice when they need it most. By joining the Eastbourne Legal Walk, you can help to ensure the people of your community have fair access to justice, and the beneficiary agencies can keep the lights on and the doors open for the people who need them most.

The Walk starts at the Citizens Advice Eastbourne office on St Leonard’s Road at 5pm, and ends at the View Hotel (BN21 4DN).

Why We Walk
Why We Walk:
The important thing is that we raise as much as possible for Citizens Advice Eastbourne who are struggling to maintain services with the increased challenges created by the rise in cost of living.
The number of people seeking help with Debt, Benefits, Homelessness and Employment has increased dramatically since the rise in cost of living. Those seeking help with Domestic Violence has also risen sharply.
