'We walked the law, and the law won'

'We walked the law, and the law won'

To paraphrase Bob Marley,  "The sun was shining the weather was sweet. Made us wanna move our walking feet".

On 19 May 2014 the Purpose Built bloggers joined 8300 others from the legal community for the 10th London Legal Walk raising £530,000 for the London Legal Support Trust.  The trust supports over 80 charities in London and the South East, providing legal assistance to some of the poorest and most vulnerable members of our community.  First held in 2005, participation in the walk has spiralled from a modest 330 walkers at inception and over the years has raised in the region of £3 million pounds.
