An enthusiastic team of fundraising women made over £2,700 at a sponsored moonwalk in London earlier this month, to help fight breast cancer.

Calling themselves ‘The Wolds Women’ locals Juli Shepherd, Louise East, Sally Brealey, Ali Jenkins and Lisa Fox-Power joined 17,000 others to walk 26.2 miles through the streets of London at midnight, raising money and awareness for breast cancer.

The event is organised by the grant making breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.

Juli Shepherd was inspired to take this challenge after losing her cousin Katie last year, to breast cancer. She was only in her thirties and left behind a husband and two small girls.

Juli said: “The Moonwalk London was such a fantastic night and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our sponsors.”

The funds raised at the Moonwalk are granted to support research into breast cancer and to organisations which provide emotional and physical support for those living with cancer.
