Nearly £1,500 was raised for local charities in the 2021 annual Northampton Legal Walk – a 10km sponsored which took placed on Monday 21st June, organised by local law firm HCR Hewitsons.
The event, which followed a route around Northampton and the surrounding area, raised much-needed money for free local legal advice charities, who deliver essential advice on matters such as housing, employment and domestic abuse.
Joint head of the Northampton office of HCR Hewitsons and deputy high sheriff Dominic Hopkins, joined the county’s high sheriff, Amanda Lowther, as a lead walker in this annual event.
Dominic said: “There has never been more need for the services of the local charities we support, due to the pandemic, and whilst some support has been received from government, much more is needed.
“By taking part in the Northampton Legal Walk and seeking sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues, those who took part helped to secure vital funds needed for this important cause.”
Organisations supported by the event:
- 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
The post-walk celebration was held outside HCR Hewitsons’ Northampton office, where participants were invited to join their colleagues for complementary refreshments.
