Sign Up to the Derby Legal Walk
Join Smith Partnership and sign up for the first ever Derby Legal Walk which takes place on Monday 2nd October at 5pm. The 10km sponsored walk around the city of Derby will raise much needed funds for free legal advice charities in Derby and across the Midlands.
The event is being organised by the Derby Junior Lawyer group and The Midland Legal Support Trust (Charity No. 1128045), a charity which raises funds to support people who need legal help but cannot afford it.
Employees from Smith Partnership will be taking part in the walk and the solicitor group is calling for people from other law firms, local government, in-house legal teams plus family and friends to sign up and take part in this unique fundraising event.
Hannah Read, who is a Paralegal at Smith Partnership and a member of the Derby Junior Lawyer group, put forward the suggestion of Derby hosting a walk to The Midland Legal Support Trust. She said:
“It’s fantastic that Derby has been chosen to host this event and it’s a great opportunity for people who work in law locally to gather together and raise funds for this deserving cause. By taking part in the Derby Legal Walk and seeking sponsorship from your friends, family and colleagues, you will be helping to secure vital funds needed for this important cause. The event takes place straight after work which is perfect timing for even the busiest of people so don’t delay – sign up today!”
