Thank you Bob Mortimer!

A huge thank you to Bob Mortimer, comedian, podcast presenter, occasional fisherman who launched the BBC Radio 4 Appeal on behalf of LawWorks on July 4th. Our Appeal focussed on Ann, who needed urgent legal advice when she was served with court documents by her ex-husband’s solicitors, but could not afford to pay for a lawyer and did not qualify for legal aid.

Thank you to everyone who responded to our Radio 4 appeal in July. If you missed the original broadcast you can listen to the appeal through the BBC Sounds - but please now donate directly through our website. We have been incredibly pleased by the response and with your amazing support we raised over £24,000 - thank you! This will contribute to ensuring we can continue to support clinics in helping people to access the legal help they need.

As we emerge from the pandemic, we are already seeing a greater need for specialist legal advice and support. We know that many of you give so much already, including by volunteering in one of our programmes, but now more than ever we need you to join us in ensuring access to legal advice and support.

Please support us by making a donation through our website, or, alternatively, please contact Leanne Hubbard, our Head of Fundraising, to discuss how you can fundraise for us, make a regular donation or leave a gift to us in your will.

Thank you for enabling us to continue our vital work.
