Beaufort Financial sponsors the Reading Legal Walk

Reading-based independent financial adviser, Beaufort Financial, a member of the national partnership of IFA firms, is sponsoring the Reading Legal Walk. In its fourth year, the Walk takes place on the 25th September, setting off from the Walkabout pub, on Friar Street at 17.30.

The fundraiser is a 10km walk that aims to raise funds for legal advice agencies and the Citizens’ Advice Bureaux in Reading and the Thames Valley.

As well as sponsoring the event, Beaufort Financial will be handing out bottles of water at the start of the walk. For every walker returning an empty bottle for recycling, the firm will give each walker a sports drinking bottle to take away as a souvenir of the event.

The event is part of a series of sponsored and fund raising walks involving legal professionals, which take place in London and the South East annually. This year the walk will be led by Simon Davis, Deputy Vice President of the Law Society, and some 180 of Reading’s legal professionals will be participating.

Chris Shaw, Managing Director of Beaufort Financial, said: “We uphold the belief that access to justice should be equally available to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. This principle is at the cornerstone of the legal justice system in England and Wales; in practice it is not always the case.

Advice Agencies and Citizens Advice Bureaux work very hard to help vulnerable people to access justice through a mixture of ‘Legal Aid’ (publicly-funded work), funding from local authorities, charitable donations, and by using pro bono volunteers.

We are very happy to be supporting this worthwhile event, and helping all of the participants to keep hydrated!
