The MoonWalk London returned to the streets of London in a blaze of colour on Saturday night as the iconic fundraising walk took place for the first time in three years.

After enjoying the festival atmosphere on Clapham Common, thousands of women and men wearing brightly decorated bras set off on their 15.1 or 26.2-mile challenges.

The event is organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk and has already raised more than £2 million.

Walk the Walk grants funds to help fund research into breast cancer and to help improve the lives of those with cancer now.

This year’s MoonWalk theme was “Your Hero” with bra designs honouring those who have been affected by cancer, supporting the Ukraine and NHS workers as well as celebrating football teams and comic book superheroes.

Nina Barough, founder and chief executive of Walk the Walk, said: “This was The MoonWalk London’s big comeback and it was wonderful to see how much everyone really wanted to be together, after so long apart.

“We have worked incredibly hard to make sure there was nothing in the way of the event actually going ahead.

“To arrive at Clapham Common on a beautiful, warm May evening, and for our walkers to start their challenges under a stunning full moon was amazing.

“It felt like the universe was finally being kind to us, as we all united together to raise money for those with cancer, who need our support now, more than ever.”
