A team from Cartridges Law will be lacing up their walking boots ready to take part in the Exeter Legal Walk, which takes place on June 13.
This event sees members of the local legal profession and advice sector taking part in a sponsored 10k walk to raise funds for local advice charities, and to raise awareness of protecting people’s rights and promoting equal access to justice for all. Last year the event, which is supported by the Devon and Somerset Law Society, raised more than £2,500.
Penny Scott, partner at Cartridges Law, said: ‘We have backed the Law Society’s campaign to improve access to justice for all, regardless of social background or wealth, so it is fitting that a team from our company takes part in the Exeter Legal Walk.
‘At Cartridges Law we have always believed law must be fair and accessible to people and should not be restricted by their background or their ability to pay.’
Penny, who is also chair of the Law Society’s family law committee, added: ‘We are great believers in supporting our community and it’s not something to which we pay ‘lip service’. We encourage all our staff to support causes close to their hearts, from working on an allotment for Age UK, to running our free legal drop in advice sessions.’
The company’s office mascot Betsey the Tibetan Terrier will be taking part in the Legal Walk with her owner Ros Davies, who is a probate specialist at Cartridges Law. Betsey is a familiar (canine) face at lots of events, including Exeter Pride, and along with Ros she recently took part in the Great British Dog Walk on Haldon. That event was held to raise funds for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, a charity which trains dogs to provide independence and companionship for those with hearing difficulties.
