Staff at a Stratford law firm have raised more than £1,200 through a sponsored walk.

Twenty colleagues from Blavo & Co, based on the Broadway, collected £1,276 - their highest total ever.

The annual London Legal Walk saw more than 8,000 employees from the law industry take on a 10km walk to raise money for the London Legal Support Trust, which provides free legal services at law centres and agencies.

The circuit took in a number of London landmarks and legal points of interest.

Solicitor Katarzyna Jurkun, who organised the Blavo & Co team, said:

“The walk was a fantastic experience for everyone and we’re really pleased to have raised so much for such a worthwhile cause.

“It is our highest total so far, beating last year’s figure of £940 and helped the event raise a record amount overall this year.
