Cathy Sloman and I – The MoonWalk Cowgirls

Well I didn’t expect to be a poster girl at my grand old age (especially in one’s bra!) but I have suddenly found myself emblazoned on billboards in nearly every tube station across London.

How did this happen? You may ask. Well my lovely friend Cathy Sloman and I did The MoonWalk two years ago and we were spotted and photographed in our flamboyant cowboy outfits. Miraculously enough the theme for Moonwalk 2018 is The Wild West, so the wonderful gals at WalkTheWalk thought our look was just perfect!  Yee! Haa! We’re so delighted because it is such an amazing cause, raising funds for research and aid for people with breast cancer. This charity is so close to my heart as so many of my lovely friends have been affected by this deadly disease.

The MoonWalk is a fantastic experience and Cathy and I are SO up to doing it again next year. If you’d like to get involved, here’s what happening . Well, it’s on 12th May 2018 in London and over 15,000 women and yes some guys too will either walk or power walk a full moon marathon (26.2 miles) of half-moon (13.1 plus 2 miles) through the streets of the capital wearing fabulously decorated bras. It really is a sight to behold I can tell you!

Fellow Walkers Jennifer Saunders and Harriet Thorpe

The great thing about The MoonWalk is that you have such fun whilst raising vital money needed to fight breast cancer. There’s such a great camaraderie amongst the walkers. Even Jennifer Saunders takes part! In fact, she was our pacer and every time I lost sight of the Absolutely Fabulous actress during the Moonwalk I knew we had to get a move on. Thank you Edina – you kept us going!

It’s such an exhilarating challenge! So, if you do feel inspired to get involved either as a walker or a volunteer contact

Cowgirl Fun Yee! Haa!
