Staff at BHT Eastbourne Advice will be joining the annual Eastbourne 10k Legal Walk on 21 July 2014 to raise money for advice services in the town and are looking for walkers to join their team.
Judges from Eastbourne County Court will be leading lawyers, law firms and chambers, members of the judiciary, the advice sector and the general public on the Eastbourne 10k Legal Walk along the coast to raise money for BHT Eastbourne Advice and Eastbourne Citizens Advice Bureau.
The walk will leave from Eastbourne County Court at 5.30pm on 21 July.
For more information please contact Alison Burrell via email or by calling 01323 340128.
The Eastbourne 10k legal walk is an annual event aimed at raising awareness that there is free, independent advice available in the town.
Over the last year we have seen changes in legal aid. A number of areas where we used to provide advice and representation are no longer funded, and those areas where we are funded have seen a reduction in the amounts we receive.
I would urge everyone who believes in access to advice and representation to join the walk. The company is good, the scenery is great, and the cause second to none.
Andy Winter, BHT Chief Executive
