A 28-strong SBA team was out in full force this week at the London Legal Walk offering walkers a host of goodies to take away with them and telling as many people as possible about the SBA’s work and how it can help solicitors and their families in times of need.
The walk itself saw a record 15,000 walkers from 886 registered teams complete the 10-kilometre fundraising event, which started at the Law Society and right by the SBA’s stand on Carey Street.
We gave away 1,000 portions of popcorn in just over an hour and 500 goody bags full of things we hope everyone will find useful.
Walkers followed one of two routes. ‘River and bridges’ crossed the Thames at Blackfriars, and went along the south bank to Vauxhall Bridge. ‘Parks’ took a long loop through Green Park, St James’s and Hyde Park, returning via The Mall and Strand.
Newly-appointed SBA CEO Nick Gallagher said: “The London Legal Walk was the perfect opportunity for us to ensure solicitors are aware of the support the SBA offers whilst enjoying a fun atmosphere and taking away our goody bags and free popcorn. The whole SBA team had a great day and the weather was perfect”.
