My story

[p][b]We did it! (but of course there is still time to make a donation...)[/b][/p][p]Normally we walk 10 km with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers in the London Legal Walk. This year the pandemic forced the cancellation of the event, so we rowed our skiff 10 km on the River Thames instead. It wasn't as easy as it looked, as we had challenging post-flood conditions and a reduced crew due to social distancing rules. Thankfully the sun shine brightly and there was hardly any wind![/p][p]Our crew were (in alphabetical order): Tim Lamb, Kish Modasia, Paresh Modasia, Matt Preston and Marcus Tregilgas-Davey.[/p][p]The funds raised will help provide free legal advice for those who cannot afford it, in areas of law such as rent disputes, debt and loss of employment. The number of people needing this kind of help has increased dramatically as a result of coronavirus restrictions and ongoing turmoil. [/p][p]Charities have been severely affected as well losing an estimated £10 Billion in event income and grants. Thus advice charities supported by this event are facing far more need for their services with less funding for their services.[/p]
