Norwich Legal Walk 2017

On Monday 15th May five walkers from NCLS joined in the Norwich Legal Walk which is a 10km walk around Norwich organised by the Eastern Legal Support Trust. The aim of the walk is to raise funds for Local Advice Services such as NCLS.

Over 60 people, many of who were from local law firms and the University of East Anglia’s Law School, took part in the walk. The route led through many parts of the city including the Cathedral, Carrow Road, Dragon Hall and Norwich Castle. The walk ended in the Aviva’s Marble Hall on Surry Street where participants were treated to a celebratory drink and had the opportunity to network.

NCLS has so far raised £340 in sponsorship from the Walk, with the total raised by all participants being £1837.540 as of 30th May.

The Great Legal Bake 2017

Quiz Night - Wednesday 16th November

Another successful  quiz night was held at the Unthank Arms, Norwich which raised nearly £500 to go towards funding our services.

Annual Public Law Lecture

On Monday 3rd October the Norwich Cathedral Hostry saw NCLS and Leeway Domestic Abuse Services continue their partnership working to host an important address from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Northumbria, Vera Baird QC.

Vera spoke on the topic of accountability within the Police and Judiciary concerning violence against women and girls, and ways in which she is working with agencies in Northumbria to ensure the experience of victims if abuse is improved.  

The full audience included the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, Lorne Green and the chairs of the Norfolk County Community Safety Partnership and Norfolk Safeguarding Boards who sponsored the event.

Vera Baird said afterwards: "It was great to have a full house which shows just how seriously this issue is taken by a great range of people in Norfolk. There is a job still to do, particular in rural area. We would be delighted to bring the ideas we have explored in Northumbria, in the hope that they can be taken on, and that we in turn can learn from you".

Many Proctor, Chief Executive of Leeway said "It was a fantastic talk by a truly inspiring speaker. The ideas she expressed were highly innovative and we look forward to working with both her and NCLS in the future". 

NCLS Fundraising Scavenger Hunt

The first NCLS Scavenger Hunt took place in September and a great time was had by all. £90 was raised to go towards supporting NCLS's services. Thank you to everyone who took part and supported us.

We plan to hold a bigger and better Scavenger Hunt next year so watch this space!
