University law team take to the streets for annual sponsored walk

News Page 26th April 2018

The Law team at the University of Northampton will pound the pavements of Northampton to drum up cash for a local rights and equality charity.

Staff and students of the University will be joined by members of local chambers, law firms, and advice organisations to take on their annual sponsored walk on Monday 30 April.

The group will be trekking 10 kilometres across the town centre, starting at Northampton Crown Court and ending up at Hewitsons, Elgin House.

This year’s target amount is £500 and the selected charity is Northamptonshire Rights and Equality Council, which supports and represents victims of discrimination and hate incidents.

Rebecca Barrick, Senior Graduate Tutor and Associate Lecturer in Law and organiser of this year’s University team, said: “This will be my third year doing the walk. I did it once as a student walking for the University’s Law Society, and twice for the staff team. It is good exercise and a fantastic opportunity to raise money for a good cause. There are individuals walking from different organisations within the field of law, so it is also a great networking opportunity.”
