Friends tackle moonlit marathon for charity

Friends tackle moonlit marathon for charity

25 May 2018

Two friends from Monmouth School for Girls wore eye-catching cowboy hats in a moonlit marathon to raise money for breast cancer charities.

Sixth Form students Amy Hughes and Maki Brophy trekked 15.1 miles across the centre of London in memory of Amy’s aunt, Andrea Nelson, who died a year ago.

The girls were among 15,000 other men and women who donned decorated bras and embraced a Wild West theme for The MoonWalk London.

The annual MoonWalk, in aid of Walk the Walk started and ended in Clapham Common.

The walk took in sights of the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Battersea Park with entertainment along the route including fire eaters, magicians and bands.

The girls are close to reaching £1,000 in sponsorship, which will be double their initial fundraising target.

Money from the challenge will be spent in hospices across the UK to provide support for breast cancer patients and their families.
