My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our team's fundraising page for the 2019 London Legal sponsored walk.[/p][p]Our team so far is:- [b]Emma Ginn, Theresa Schleicher, Lisa Incledon, Kris Harris[/b][/p][p]We are walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers who will be raising funds for Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London.[/p][p]Our walk team is raising funds for [url=http://www.medicaljustice.org.uk/]Medical Justice[/url] and all funds donated to this page will be passed to Medical Justice ith no deduction. [/p][p]Medical Justice offers essential medical help to the most powerless in society. About 30,000 people a year are held in indeterminate immigration detention in the UK. Many detainees have suffered torture or ill treatment, have significant and chronic health problems, and a few may be pregnant, or have been detained for prolonged periods of time without any prospect of release or removal. Being detained indefinitely itself causes serious health problems. Many independent reports and legal judgements provide evidence of the inadequate healthcare provided in detention centres, especially for those with mental health problems.[/p][p]Clinicians volunteering for Medical Justice document detainees’ scars of torture to assist in their asylum claims and challenge medical mistreatment of those held in detention. These cases provide the evidence for research, publications and campaigns for lasting improvements for detainees.[/p][p]Medical Justice is a tiny organisation, but we are effective thanks to the courage and generosity of our volunteers, clinicians, interpreters and ex-detainees – and thanks to partnerships with colleagues in other organisations in this field[/p][p][b]Please support our walkers as generously as you are able[/b][/p][p][b]Thank you[/b][/p][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/i][/p]
