The inaugural Colchester Legal Sponsored Walk
The Eastern Legal Support Trust and other legal organisations are walking to raise funds for our Law Advice Centre, a free legal advice service staffed by local volunteer lawyers and based at Ipswich & Suffolk Council for Racial Equality.
The Ipswich & Suffolk Council for Racial Equality has learnt
that we have been successful in our bid to the National Lottery’s Reaching
Thanks to the enormous efforts – within a very short time period –
by ISCRE’s supporters, volunteers, trustees and staff – we were able to put
together a very impressive bid and so will be receiving the full £295,000 to
fund a three-year project aimed at providing legal support for those facing
discrimination across Suffolk.
This grant reverses the recent cutbacks that we have had to make.
