#GoTheExtraMile for Justice day

November 5, 2020

Take part in the Access to Justice Foundation’s #GotheExtraMile for Justice day on Thursday 5th November in celebration of Pro Bono Week 2020!

Challenge yourself to Go the Extra Mile for Justice with the Access to Justice Foundation and help support free legal advice services across the UK this Pro Bono Week.

We’ve chosen Thursday 5th November as Go the Extra Mile for Justice day! A special day for the legal community to join together to raise money and awareness for the access to justice sector and the role Pro Bono work plays in helping vulnerable people in the UK get access to free legal help.

  • Walking 5K
  • Running 10 miles
  • Swimming 25 laps
  • Rowing 2 miles
  • Rollerblading around the garden
  • Going up and down the stairs 100 times

Or whatever method you like – it’s up to you!

We’re fundraising for Go the Extra Mile for Justice for the rest of the year, so if you can’t take part in the #GotheExtraMile for Justice day on Thursday 5th November, you can spread your challenge over the next few weeks, or even months!

Go the Extra Mile for Justice is sponsored by the Law Society of England and Wales and CJCH Solicitors. For more information on the event, or to discuss your challenge, contact Laura Cassidy events@atjf.org.uk
