They were joined by fellow EastEnders actress Heather Peace, Hollyoaks actor David Ames, and broadcaster Gaby Roslin. Together, they participated in Moonwalk London, an annual walking event organised by the breast cancer charity Walk The Walk.

A Night of Glamour and Charity

Harriet Thorpe, known for her role as Queen Vic landlady Elaine Peacock, is an ambassador for Walk The Walk. She donned a striking black bra with red and gold embroidery, paired with a black mesh cardigan. Natalie Cassidy and the other stars also sported decorated bras or t-shirts with printed lingerie, adding to the colourful and festive atmosphere.

The overnight event began from Clapham Common on Saturday. Participants walked either a half or full marathon through the streets of the capital, raising awareness for those living with cancer. So far, the walk has raised nearly £2 million for the charity. Walk The Walk aims to fund cancer research and provide emotional and physical support for individuals affected by the disease.

Moonwalkers Light Up London

Participants, affectionately known as Moonwalkers, wore colourful bras and bralettes adorned with sequins, feather boas, and tassels. Some even wore large capes with fairy lights, adding a touch of sparkle to the event. The sight of hundreds of creatively dressed walkers winding through the city was truly inspiring.

To ensure inclusivity, the charity also hosted an online event named the 5K Zoom. This virtual challenge saw 150 Moonwalkers of all ages and abilities take part, proving that distance and physical limitations are no barriers to showing support.

Walk The Walk’s Legacy

Walk The Walk began in 1996 and hosted its first Moonwalk London 26 years ago. Since then, it has become a beloved annual event, drawing participants from all walks of life to come together for a common cause. The funds raised have made a significant impact on cancer research and support services, underscoring the power of community and collective effort.

Moonwalk London continues to be a beacon of hope and solidarity for those affected by breast cancer. With nearly £2 million raised this year, the event has once again highlighted the incredible generosity and spirit of its participants. As the walkers continue to raise awareness and funds, they bring us closer to a future where cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease.
