Citizens Advice’s walk for justice raises funds for free legal advice

More than 20 people from branches across the region, including many from the Tonbridge Castle office, took part in the 10K ‘walk for justice’, which is held in St James’s Park, Green Park and Hyde Park, among other landmarks.

The group completed this year’s walk in a record time of two hours.

They raised more than £600, which will go towards tribunal appeals for disabled clients, organised by the Welfare Rights team which is based in Tonbridge.

Angela Newey, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice in North and West Kent and former manager at the Tonbridge & Malling branch, was among those who took part.

She said: “This is a terrific event which benefits charities such as ourselves who provide people with free legal advice when they are their most vulnerable.

“Not only did our volunteers raise much-needed money for our organisation, but they also completed the walk in record time.

“I can’t thank them enough for their efforts and I look forward to doing it all over again next year.”
