Team L&T Gather to Walk For Walker

19th January 2024

Despite the cold snap, we completed our fifth annual ‘Walk for Walker‘ fundraiser in aid of the James Walker Legacy Award yesterday, Thursday 18 January 2024.

In a single lunch break each January, we challenge ourselves to collectively walk the mileage (in either our office neighbourhood or in local areas) between our London office and James Walker’s home town of Brighton.

Around 40 of us simultaneously walked over one mile each, helping us hit our group target of 56.1miles by foot, whether with colleagues or working from home.  Once again, our Walk for Walker experiences have been captured in an album below.

If you missed our update about Lee & Thompson’s progress with the Award a couple of months back, please see here.

Established in 2020, the James Walker Legacy Award provides much-needed support for graduates of the National Film & Television School‘s screenwriting and producing courses in the first crucial year after graduating.  The Award, which combines financial assistance, mentoring, legal help and/or networking opportunities will help them hit the ground running and allow them to dedicate their time to further developing their portfolios and establishing themselves in the industry.  It stands to help emerging talent as they navigate the challenges of breaking into the industry, while enabling them to establish themselves regardless of background or financial means, all in the spirit of the support James gave to so many.
