After completing the London Marathon Pat Brightman, a member of the Great Yarmouth & District Athletic Club, took to the streets of London at midnight on Saturday to take part in the 20th Playtex Moonwalk.

This was her 11th moonwalk and along with 15,000 other participants all in decorated bras she walked a marathon, 26.2 miles, around the streets of the capital

They started at Clapham Common, then took in all the sights on their route – Buckingham Palace, Westminster, and the London Eye - before progressing alongside the River Thames to Battersea, Chelsea and Knightsbridge before returning to Clapham Common in the early morning.

This challenge was said to have brought together women and men who have the united goal of raising money and awareness for vital breast cancer causes.

So far £1.5m has been raised from Saturday's Playtex Moonwalk.
