She has just completed The MoonWalk London with her mum and cousin, her dad, sister and boyfriend also helped at the event.

Sara joined 15,000 walkers on a midnight power walk marathon around London wearing a decorated bra.

She said: “I walked with mum the whole night and we took just under eight hours to complete the full marathon.

“The next five weeks now turn to hill walk training ready for Peru.”

Sara has been raising money for Walk the Walk for more than ten years, she said: “I am raising money for Walk The Walk because I know a lot of people who have been affected by breast cancer, some have beat it and other have sadly passed away.

“I have always made my own decorated bra for the events and there is a different theme each year, this time I have gone for Peruvian colours and decor, ready for the trail in Peru.

“In Peru we won’t be able to wear the bras we decorate on the trail but we will have a night where everyone gets together and wears them.”

Sara will take on the challenge from Thursday, June 22, to Saturday, July 1, hoping to raise £700.

She added: “I have been doing a lot of walking to prepare for the trail, I also use the exercise bike and have been doing circuits at Pages Park.”
