Mental health firm Blavo & Co Solicitors has beaten the starting gun to announce that its team is joining 8,000 walkers and runners on next Monday's London Legal Walk.

Nearly 40 legal professionals from Blavo will take part in the 10-kilometre walk. Last year the event raised £560,000 to help fund law centres and free legal advice in London and the south-east.

The team, which includes walkers from Blavo’s London offices and from its Guildford and St Albans branches, aims to better the £940 they raised last year.

The Gazette's media team will be on hand during the walk – and at the post-event street party. Watch this space for a preview of our new T-shirt livery.
