Southampton Legal Walk 2018

The Southampton Legal Walk is a 10km after work walk that raises funds for legal advice agencies in Southampton and Hampshire.  

A huge thank you to all 130 walkers who took part and raised funds for local legal advice charities and agencies. Together, you have raised nearly £7,000 , twice last year's total! These funds enable local legal advice charities to continue to provide vital services to those in desperate need of free legal advice.

 "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.  

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

"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," 

The walk was sponsored by  Iceberg  - the legal finance specialists
