We had a grand total of 11 teams sign up with the biggest team coming from Swansea University College of Law and Criminology.
A big congratulations goes out to Swansea Law Society, who are topping the fundraising table at the moment, raising almost £600, with Swansea Neath Talbot Citizens Advice coming a close second, with almost £500. This is a huge achievement and we are very grateful to these teams for pulling out all the stops to raise as much money as possible to support access to justice.
We had several charities who joined the walk in order to fundraise for their organisation, including the Bar Pro Bono Unit, the CAB and FNF Both Parents Matter. Free legal advice services are often the last resort for local people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances without the means to pay for private legal advice. The funds raised by the Swansea Legal Walk, and Reaching Justice Wales as a whole, will go to support these charities in the incredible services which they provide, as well as other organisations that work throughout the region and help thousands of people every year navigate the complicated legal system.
The walk has broken all previous records, raising over £2000 so far. Without your contribution the Swansea Legal Walk, the work of Reaching Justice Wales would not be possible.
Please continue to fundraise and ensure that we can help more vital services than ever before.
