Walking for Justice in London under Lockdown: the 2020 London Legal Walk 10xChallenge

Every year ICLR holds an office bake sale and sends a team on the LLST Legal Walk to help raise funds for legal aid and advice. This year, we were forced to walk (or bake) in socially distanced isolation, but we went ahead anyway.

The latest walk took place on Monday 5 October. This post shares the account and images of two of our walkers. You can still give via the ICLR’s donations page.

Following the 10,000 Steps for Justice event in June, I resumed my fundraising activities for the London Legal Support Trust at the weekend, baking about 20 cheese scones (2 x 10) which I am eating my way through (fast).

I set off from Highbury on what was still a dry afternoon, and walked down to the Angel, Islington with my wife. On the way we stopped at a several hardware stores, looking for a specialist replacement light bulb, necessitated by a recent accidental breakage (trying to swat a persistent fly — mea culpa). At the Angel, my wife turned back and I proceeded southward alone, to Exmouth Market, where by prior arrangement I made a pit stop for tea with Nicholas Mercer of ICLR (Editor of the Business Law Reports). Lockdown has deprived us both of the human contact of office life, and we had plenty to catch up on.
