York Legal Walk to help those who cannot afford legal advice

A WALK was organized to raise funds for those who cannot afford legal services.

The York Legal Walk will take place on June 20 and all funds raised will support people who do not have access to legal advice.

The 10 kilometer walk around York will start at Exhibition Square and follow the Ouse and the city walls, with a detour through Rowntree Park.

It was organized by the Access to Justice Foundation Yorkshire, with support from Citizens Advice York and Citizens Advice Mid North Yorkshire.

One of the Trustees of Citizens Advice York, Vicky Ling, said: ‘Citizens Advice York is busier than ever advising those affected by the cost of living crisis and every penny we raise will help our advisers help more of people.

“The walk was a great opportunity to meet people from the access to justice sector last year and we look forward to meeting many more on June 20.”

Anyone living in York who needs free, confidential legal advice can use Citizens Advice: https://www.citizensadviceyork.org.uk/

Members of the public are invited to join the Legal Walk.
