London Legal Walk - 18th May 2015

Notre Dame Refugee Centre once again fielded a team of enthusiastic walkers to do the 10Km of the London Legal Walk (same route as last year –

Most of the walkers were lawyers helping to raise money for a number of organisations which provide free legal advice but we were able to raise funds for our refugee centre and would therefore ask you to dig deep and sponsor our team – you can STILL donate (with GiftAid) via our special fundraising webpage here Alternatively you can download a sponsorship form here.

Please give generously – with your help we could make this the best walk ever.
