The London Legal Walk

Last Monday, 19 May, a team from Wainwright& Cummins headed over to the Law Society on Chancery Lane for a charity walk, raising funds for the London Legal Support Trust. The LLST is an important supporter of free legal advice services, such as Legal Advice Bureaux and Advice Centres and charities.

Free legal services serve an ever-growing need for legal advice where legal aid cuts have left vulnerable people without necessary access to representation. Wainwright & Cummins is proud to support access to justice initiatives such as the LLST.

This is the view of Fontaine Stubbs, work experience student from the University of Surrey, on the London Legal Walk:

The 10K Legal Walk
The most beautiful sight was to see the legal profession coming together to support free legal advice for charities in London and the South East. It was a great atmosphere to see everyone happy and energetic to take part in the 10k walk and making use of the beautiful day. 

The 10k legal walk was an exciting yet therapeutic walk around some of London’s most amazing sights including St James’s park; where the trees stood high, the flowers blossomed and the birds sung freely. There was also the breathtaking sight of the long stretch of the lake which glistened brightly as the sun beamed its rays from above and the ducks quacked from all the excitement of the festivities.

This year we had the support of 8,000 walkers and with everyone’s tremendous efforts we have raised over £530,000.

I am happy to say that I experienced my first legal walk with Wainwright & Cummins Solicitors and its supportive team and I will definitely be taking part again next year.
