BID does the London Legal Walk 2017
Mon 22 May 2017, 16:00 – 19:00 BST
Join our team on Monday 22nd May on the London Legal Walk to raise awareness and vital funding for our legal work with immigration detainees. A 10 km walk through London, this year with two routes: a 10 km park route or a 10 km river route!
Last year 10,000 people took part on the London Legal Walk, raising an amazing £740,000 for legal aid charities around London and the south east!
BID works to challenge immigration detention in the UK through the provision of legal advice, information and representation for detainees, as well as research, policy, advocacy and strategic litigation. Find out more about our work http://www.biduk.org/
The London Legal Walk is organised by the London Legal Support Trust, a charity that raises funds for organisations like ours that provide free legal advice. Every penny raised by Team BID goes straight to BID! You can find out more about why we walk here
This year, Lord Thomas, The Lord Chief Justice and Lord Neuberger, President of the Supreme Court will be taking part too (along with a number of other lead walkers).
There will be LLST representatives at each of the end points to cheer you along! Every walker will receive a drinks voucher at the start of the walk which you can redeem for a free drink at the Knights Templar's indoor or outdoor bars, or at any bar in the Law Society! At the end of the walk there will be a street party along Carey Street and Bell Yard, with entertainment, a food market and a free photo booth!
There is no entry fee or minimum sponsorship but we do ask that you raise as much as you can because it really does make a huge difference to our work! We're asking everyone to aim for £100 of sponsorship and for each person that gets £100 in sponsorship, you’ll also get a free BID T-Shirt!
Please fill in your details to register. You’ll then receive an automatic email from Eventbrite and an email from BID and you will be added to our Virgin Money Giving page (http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/BID2017).
Please look out for the email from us because there will be more information including a sponsorship form and other important information! In the meantime if you have any questions please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
