Reading Legal Walk 2020

WALK FOR REFUGEES AT THE READING LEGAL WALK
Wed 16th September | 4.30pm – 8.00pm
Start + Finish: Forbury Gardens Bandstand, Reading

Join us at the Reading Legal Walk and give a lifeline to Refugees in Berkshire.

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

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.

WALK WITH US

If you want to join the team, please email jonjo@rrsg.org.uk and we’ll sign you up!

We’re asking walkers to try and raise £250 – roughly the cost of 8 hours of legal advice for a Refugee family.

We’ll provide posters, images for emails & social media, and can give you lots of ideas to help you raise the money.

If you know anyone who would like to join us for the walk, please forward this on to them!

JOIN US ONLINE

If you can’t walk with us in person, you can join us online and walk 10km in or near your home to help raise money.
