THE READING LEGAL WALK
Wed 16th September
A 10km walk to fund free legal advice for refugees in Berkshire.

WALK FOR REFUGEES

The Reading Legal Walk is a 10km walk to raise money for our free legal advice services for Refugees and people seeking asylum.

Following the new COVID rules, we've made some big changes to the Walk, but it is still going ahead

This is a perfect example of how hard COVID-19 has made fundraising, and why we need your help more than ever!.

Last year we gave more than 151 Refugee families and individuals hundreds of hours of free legal advice and practical help that they cannot access elsewhere.

We rely entirely on donations to continue this vital service for Refugee men, women and children in Berkshire.

Walk 10km. Raise Money. Give a lifeline to Refugees.
