The annual event takes place on Thursday 28th September 2019 when it is hoped that hundreds of walkers from the legal sector, take to the streets of the city centre of Manchester and walk 10k in order to raise funds for the North West Legal Support Trust (NWLST).
In these times of cuts to legal aid, the charity does a massive amount of work supporting those who would not be eligible for free legal assistance. The charity support organisations who:
- Prevent families being made homeless
- Prevent destitution
- Help older people gain the support to which they are entitled
- Help women and children who have been trafficked for domestic servitude or prostitution.
So far signed up we have:
- Gwyn Lewis
- Daniel Weed
- Deborah Jackson
- Bryan McMahon
- Claire Tapper
- Damian Wall
- Jonathan Wall
- Lisa Nevitt
As well as a number of support staff.
