RLC members joined the legal community walking and ‘stepping’ from a multitude of city and country locations in London’s ‘Virtual’ Legal Walk of 2020

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, fundraising for free legal advice services is more critical than ever if agencies are to continue doing their jobs in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, and fighting discrimination and exploitation.

In response, RLC members took on the ‘10,000 steps for Justice’ challenge to raise funds in support of these free specialist legal advice services.

The Red Lion ‘Steppers’ included: Antony Shaw QC, Jeremy Benson QC, Allison Clare QC, Tom Forster QC, Jane Bewsey QC, Riel Karmy-Jones Q.C., Cameron Brown QC, Professor Laura Hoyano, Laura Jane Miller, Janine Sheff, Sam Smart, Mark Bennett, Nick Parkinson, Lee Young, Rachel Shepherd, Nicholas Hall and Zoe Chapman.

Locations included: Hilperton near west Wiltshire, the old Surrey Canal, Stratford St.Mary (Suffolk) via Flatford Mill and the River Stour, the Wandle Trail, South Downs National Park, East Hertfordshire farmlands, Kent, Worth Park Lake in Crawley, Oxleas Wood in Greenwich as well as the streets of Bermondsey, Walworth and Peckham in London. Four legged furry friends also joined in to assist: Alfie, Annie and Rocco and Cameron Brown QC ‘served up an ace’ completing his 10,000 steps sweating it out on the tennis court! (Pictures below)

Chambers will support the Free Representation Unit and Advocate with the funds raised. For more info see here : [Red Lion Chambers Walkers 2020]
