South West volunteers support Moonwalk
A bus full of volunteers will travel from the South West to the big smoke in May, to help out at the 20th annual charity Moonwalk.
Weston-super-Mare coach company Bakers Dolphin and locally-based national charity Penny Brohn Cancer Care are teaming up to lay on the trip to the iconic powerwalking charity event, which raises millions of pounds for breast cancer causes.
The event, which sees over 15,000 women come together in brightly decorated bras, is taking place on Clapham Common and features both a full marathon and half marathon option for participants.
Bakers Dolphin Sales and Marketing Director, Amanda Harrington, said: “This event is one of the biggest on the fundraising calendar so it's great to be able to offer people from the South West the chance to go and support it, along with Penny Brohn Cancer Care which offers great services in the region.
Penny Brohn Cancer Care, based in Pill, does not receive any form of statutory funding and so relies entirely on voluntary donations such as those from Walk the Walk to help people to live well with cancer. The charity offers a range of residential and non-residential programmes from one-to-one appointments through to five-day courses.
