My story

[p]I will be running the London Marathon on the 3rd October to raise funds for the [url=]London Legal Support Trust[/url] and [url=]Luton Law Centre[/url]. I am a passionate supporter of access to justice and have chosen these two organisations to fundraise and run for (with huuuuge effort) as they provide access to free legal advice in communities where it is hard to reach.[/p][p]I can think of no better way of showing my support for these organisations (and an appreciation of the challenges being faced) than pushing myself far outside of my comfort zone and signing up for the Marathon (and raising the necessary funds in the process). [/p][p][b]Luton Law Centre (LLC)[/b] are a Not for Profit legal practice which gives professional, confidential legal advice and assistance to the local community. They use their legal expertise to make sure everyone has access to justice. LLC help people get the support they are entitled to or get redress for unfair or wrong decisions. LLC is a valuable resource and use their legal expertise to up for the rights of disadvantaged people. Society is stronger when everyone has access to justice, regardless of their means. Last year alone LLC took nearly 3000 calls and opened almost 800 new cases. [/p][p]We have a team of seven legal experts who deal with Housing, Immigration and Asylum, and Community Care. We are assisted by volunteers who help us see and support more people. [/p][p]We run a range of services including free AdviceLines where members of the public can contact us to obtain free legal advice about their issues, and we are part of the Housing & Possession Court Duty Scheme.[/p][p][b]London Legal Support Trust (LLST)[/b] is a charity that supports law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the South East. These agencies help the most vulnerable people to combat discrimination and injustice. Legal help at a time of crisis and distress makes a huge difference to people's lives, reducing debt, poverty and homelessness and maintaining rights.[/p][p]This is a cause I believe in so please sponsor my run as generously as you can! Together, we can help vulnerable people access justice.[/p][p]Thank you for your support.[/p]
