Race, Bake or Quiz for Justice
As we say so long to summer, it’s time to welcome in the Autumn and some FUNdraising challenges to round off the year.
Walk the Thames – Saturday 15th October
If you enjoy long walks (and pub lunches) this is the event for you! Join us on the 15th of October for a half or full marathon along the river Thames. Link up with friends and colleagues or go this challenge alone and make new friends along the route.
Starting at Tower Bridge (or Putney if you join at the half way point), you’ll pass some of London’s best landmarks before enjoying a drink (or two) at the finish line at Putney for a half marathon or in Hampton Court for the whole marathon. Pick your pace, be it a stroll, power walk, or if you are feeling brave, run all the way alongside Lord Justice Haddon-Cave. If you prefer a walking challenge, Sir Peter Gross will be leading the walkers from Putney.
Walk the Thames is one of our favourite events of the year and has a real ‘family feel’ with many walkers returning year on year. We’d love you to be part of the community.
Great Legal Bake 7 – 11 November (part of National Pro Bono Week)
We couldn’t be more excited for the return of the sweetest fundraiser in the legal calendar. Since the Great Legal Bake started in 2013, our star bakers have raised an incredible £150,000 in support of frontline free legal advice agencies in London & the South East.
Taking part is easy as pie – just sign up and we’ll send you a welcome email, followed by a poster pack of helpful tips and cake labels. All you need to do is find some willing bakers (cake eaters are less tricky to source) and set a date.
Great Legal Quiz – Wednesday 30 November
One for the trivia buffs – our annual quiz returns for a night of ‘friendly competition’ on the 30th November. Not only will you be competing with your friends and colleagues, the Great Legal Quiz is part of a wider national competition with a coveted trophy up for grabs!
We provide the questions and answer sheets courtesy of our pro quiz writer, so all you need to do is find a venue (you can use your office or a local pub) and get swotting.
We do hope you’ll be able to join in with our autumnal events. Every penny raised makes a tremendous difference, helping the most vulnerable in our community access justice.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
