The Newcastle Legal Walk took place yesterday. This is an annual event where local law firms and other organisations walk 10k through Newcastle city centre. This is to raise money for free legal advice charities to help those most in need.
Ben Hoare Bell LLP had a team of 9 (including Martha the puppy!). All of the team completed the walk and had a great time meeting other people.
So far the team has raised £105.40 with donations still coming in. Overall the charity – The North East Legal Support Trust (NELST) – has raised over £2467.50. They aim to raise at least £10,000 this year. Ben Hoare Bell Trainee Solicitor Ronagh Craddock and Family Solicitor Victoria Richardson are on the NELST committee and helped to organise the event.
