Access to Justice Foundation-Oxford Legal Walk-October 17
admin 4th August 2016
The Access to Justice Foundation is hosting the Oxford Legal Walk on Monday 17 October at 5pm.
The annual 10km walk around the sights of Oxford takes place after work and will raise funds for local legal advice charities to support their work in helping vulnerable people in desperate need of advice.
Why do we walk?
The need for legal advice centres has grown in the past few years. The recession has increased poverty and reduced services. Meanwhile funding for the advice centres themselves has reduced. The organisations we support:
  • 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

Why should you take part?

We simply can’t overcome the effects of the huge reduction in government and local authority funding over the past few years.  What we can do is to ensure that many of the people most in need get help who would otherwise have been denied.

By taking part in the Oxford Legal Walk and seeking sponsorship from your friends, family and colleagues, you will be helping to secure vital funds needed for this important cause.

What will happen on the day?

Registration will be open between 5.00pm and 5.30pm and we ask that all participants report to register before having a photograph taken with our lead walkers. Once this has been done you are ready to set off on the walk and we wish you the best of luck!

We will be running a photography challenge and encourage you to enter by tweeting your photographs from the event using the hashtag #legalwalk.
