On 30 April 2018, a band of Shoosmiths employees joined their local legal counterparts on a well-attended walk through Northampton and the surrounding area, raising money for local advice centres.
Despite the cold wind, all marchers were eager to put their walking boots on and raise money for the Midland Legal Support Trust (MLST), who organised the event.
The MLST is a charity that raises vital funds for the continued provision of free legal advice to some of the most deprived and vulnerable members of the local community. Shoosmiths employees were proud to contribute their marching boots to the cause and have so far raised and donated £250.
Donations continue to be accepted until 30 July 2018 and any contribution to vital local services are appreciated! (https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/shoosmithsllpnorthampton)
As seen on the photos below, the evening was filled with cheer and healthy competition between the local firms. Whilst the teams fought to overtake each other during the walk, the ultimate winners are members of the local community who will ultimately benefit from the raised funds.
The Legal Walk is currently on course to meet its £3,000 target and we would like to thank the MLST for the opportunity to contribute to such a good cause.
Thank you to all donors and participants for your enthusiasm throughout!
