On the 26th September 2013, it was a warm and sunny Thursday in Manchester and the 2013 Legal Walk had taken to the city streets.
A team of 12 from Express Solicitors, consisting of 11 employees and a keen Beagle, took part in the 10 kilometre walk to raise money for charity.
The aptly named ‘Express Yourself’ started off strong and set out at a good pace. Of course, they had all pledged to power through the first 5 kilometres, set an example for the other teams and then stop off for a pint at the pub.
At 6:30pm the team took a well-deserved break in the Northern Quarter for a thirst quenching pint of beer before continuing with the rest of the distance.
At the end of their walk, the Express Yourself team met up at the end for one more drink to celebrate their achievement.
The team did exceptionally well in the fundraising, with their grand total currently standing at £807.50.
All of the money raised by the Express Yourself team goes towards helping people with low incomes and don’t have access to legal aid get proper legal representation.
A big well done to everyone who took part: Louise Neveu, Chris Neil, Hannah Bottomley, Emily Shaw, Raana Afsarpour, Danni Payne, Sapna Kapoor, Sofia Crotty, Matthew Ko, Luiza Da Costa, Sharon Denby and, of course, Bobby the Beagle!
