Soaring temperatures didn’t prevent the legal community coming together for a good cause
An army of 16,000 legal professionals filled streets of London yesterday afternoon to raise money for the capital’s free legal advice charities. In the sweltering sunshine, participants marched along two 10km circuits to try to reach a £1 million fundraising target.
Teams from LawCare and the Bar Council were amongst the walkers.

And a good turnout from Dentons in purple.
Finally, the walk concluded with a street party where thirsty walkers enjoyed food stalls and entertainment and a well earned drink.
