My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our team's fundraising page for the 2020 London Legal Walk 10xChallenge. Though the usual Walk is not able to go ahead this year due to Covid-19, we are still taking part on the 5th October with a virtual 10k where we are. [/p][p]Some of us will also be taking on creative 10xChallenges, where showcasing any skills, talents and fancy dress is strongly encouraged. [/p][p]Our team is: [b]Salina Akhtar [/b](taking 10,000 steps), [b]Clare [/b](walking 10km), [b]Jo Hoskins [/b](cycling 10km), [b]Linda Lovett [/b](taking 10,000 steps), [b]Tammy Hendry, Yvette Bannister [/b](horseriding 10km)[b], Grazia Pac, Helena Lathbury [/b](2 x 5k)[b], Morgan James [/b](taking 10,000 steps)[b], Serena Marchetta [/b](taking 10,000 steps)[b], Kavita Savani, Priscilla Effah[/b] (10 deadlifts of 100kg x 3) [b], Alex Askew [/b](running 10k),[b] Nuara Choudhury [/b](hiking up Mount Snowdon)[b], Polimenis Kounduoros [/b](taking on 20km), [b]John Odgers[/b] (cooking 10 vegetarian samosas), [b]David Northfield[/b] (Running 10k), [b]Clementine Bottet[/b] (taking 10 yoga classes) , [b]Grazia Pac [/b](hiking up Scafell Pike and Helvellyn )[/p][p]We are walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers remotely to raise funds for the [url=http://www.londonlegalsupporttrust.org.uk/]London Legal Support Trust[/url] which funds Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London.[/p][p]Two-thirds of the UK population don’t know how to get legal advice and 14 million people who live in poverty can’t afford to pay for it. The London Legal Walk raises vital funds to ensure access to justice for some of our communities’ most poor and vulnerable people. [/p][p]Your support is needed now more than ever with the challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Reduced funding in the charity sector means advice agencies are doing all they can to meet rising need despite a drastically restricted income. Emergency applications for funding are pouring in, with advice charities reporting up to a 600% increase in requests for help.[/p][p]The event supports over 100 legal advice agencies in London and the South East. We know that these agencies do a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, fighting discrimination and exploitation.[/p][p]Please sponsor our walkers as generously as you are able.[/p][p]Many thanks for your support.[/p]
