Laura Hunter (pic below) the CEO of local charity Free Legal Advice Group for Domestic Violence is taking on a 100 mile challenge by walking along the Kennet & Avon Canal from Reading to Bristol. Laura accompanied by her friend will be undertaking this challenge during the month of July and hopes to raise £1,500 for her efforts.
Free Legal Advice Group for Domestic Violence (FLAG DV) is a charity (CIO 1154070) established in October 2013. The organisation was established to to fill the gap left by the reduction in Legal Aid services.

These are facilitated by family law solicitors who offer their time as pro-bono services. This service is for anyone, in Thames Valley and now expanding into Wiltshire and Hampshire, who is experiencing domestic abuse over the age of 18, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race or religion.
