Scott Rees and Co took to the streets of Liverpool with a spring in their step and at the end of it they were able to raise £273.63 for charity.

Led by Catastrophic Injury Partner, Chris Walker, who founded the first ever Liverpool Legal walk three years ago, the nine-strong team of legal eagles pounded the pavements, to help raise vital funds for the North West Legal Support Trust (NWLST), who support vulnerable people who are unable to afford legal support.

The theme for the evening was Magna Carta, in recognition of the 8ooth anniversary of its sealing and was chosen to highlight its importance and relevance to access to justice in the present day.

The money raised will now go towards helping to prevent families losing their homes, preventing destitution, supporting the elderly and allowing them access to the legal representation they are entitled to and also to help women and children who have been trafficked for domestic servitude or prostitution.

Speaking about the event, Chris Walker expressed his pride, saying: “It really is fantastic that three years on from helping to arrange the first ever Liverpool Legal Walk, it continues to grow stronger year upon year.”

“Legal representation is not something that should be exclusive to the privileged, it should be accessible to those who need it, regardless of background, race, gender or circumstances and it really is great that we have been able to do our bit to contribute towards helping those who are vulnerable get the support they need, when they need it.”

“To raise so much money for this charity is testament to all those who work at Scott Rees and Co and it was great to see us get a strong team of walkers out on a cold night in October. It just goes to show how much the legal system and being able to provide the service we specialise in means to us.”

“This year is the 800th Anniversary of the most important piece of legal legislation to have been passed in British history, the Magna Carta and events, such as these, are extremely fitting.”
