Legal Walk for Hastings' underprivileged and vulnerable

Legal Walk bannerThe annual 10km Hastings Legal Walk takes place on Monday 19 September, and once again Gaby Hardwicke is delighted to be involved.

This year Debra Frazer, Giles Robinson and Jane Strickland from Gaby Hardwicke will complete the walk, which is held in aid of underprivileged and vulnerable people in East Sussex.   

All funds raised by the walk benefit the Advice and Community Hub organisations, which are Hastings Advice & Representation Centre (HARC), Hastings Citizens Advice Bureau and the Hastings service of Brighton Housing Trust.

These charities provide vital resources to some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in East Sussex and the ultimate beneficiaries will include:

  • Families living in appalling housing conditions.
  • Elderly people who need support to stay living independently.
  • People who suffer disability or illness and their carers.
  • Women and children who have been trafficked to the UK to become domestic or sex slaves.

The hub organisations provide valuable free advice to vulnerable people who have been ineligible for legal aid since it was abolished in April 2013 for poverty-related problems. Sadly, Hastings has some of the poorest districts in the south of England, so charities such as the hub members are vital to the town.
