Fraud paralegal and team leader, Elle writes about her experience taking part in the Liverpool Legal Walk for a second year running.
Our CSR Committee arranged for team CEL Solicitors to proudly take part in the Liverpool Legal Walk 2023. This annual charity walk, organised to raise funds for the Access to Justice Foundation, saw members of the legal community come together to support a cause that lies at the heart of justice and equality.
The Cause: Access to Justice Foundation
The Access to Justice Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to ensuring that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, has equal access to legal representation and support. The foundation works tirelessly to bridge the gap between those who need legal aid and those who can provide it, promoting a fair and just legal system for all.

The 5km walk commenced at The Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts, a symbolic starting point for a journey towards a more inclusive and accessible legal system. Legal professionals, alongside community members and passionate advocates, gathered with a common goal: to make a tangible difference to the lives of those who need legal support the most. The Liverpool Legal Walk 2023 not only served as a platform for charitable giving but also provided participants with a picturesque route along the Liverpool Waterfront.
After completing the 5km walk, we were greeted with a sense of accomplishment and camaraderie as we arrived at the final destination, the Lady of Mann pub on Dale Street. Here, tired but proud, we gathered to reflect on our shared achievement and to celebrate the steps taken towards a more just society.
The Liverpool Legal Walk 2023 was a testament to the power of community spirit and collective action. Legal professionals, alongside members of the public, came together to raise vital funds for the Access to Justice Foundation. Their efforts are a beacon of hope for those who rely on legal aid and support to navigate complex legal issues.
This annual walk serves as a reminder that by taking steps towards justice, we can collectively create a more inclusive and equitable legal system for all. The Liverpool Legal Walk 2023 stands as a shining example of what can be achieved when individuals and communities come together for a shared purpose.
