Walking on sunshine – The SunWalk London 2013 in Battersea Park!



Another wonderful event organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk took place in the capital city today.

Actress Harriet Thorpe and Broadcaster Gaby Roslin joined over a thousand women, men and children as they enjoyed a fantastic day in the sunshine at The SunWalk London 2013.

Many of the walkers wore the charity’s trademark of brightly decorated bras and with this year’s Circus theme, there were some wild and wonderful creations, everyone uniting to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

But this was not just another walk in the park! London’s Battersea Park hosted a unique and wonderful cocktail of live stage music, circus sideshows, stalls, dancing, delicious food, stilt walkers, clowns, escapades and experiences for all.



Popular Children’s TV Stars Andy and Sid entertained younger visitors with their own unique show. Stars from Strictly Come Dancing hosted three exclusive “Dance the Dance” workshops, with the chance to get up close and personal and meet the dancers afterwards.

Anton and Erin, Darren and Lilia, and Matt and Nicole made it an unforgettable day for many die-hard Strictly fans.

Battersea Park also rocked to live music all day, with sets from from X-factor star Misha B, chart-topping band Sam and the Womp, and the Urban Voices Collective.

Walk the Walk has raised in excess of £87.5 million for vital breast cancer causes, since it launched 17 years ago, with money granted for research into breast cancer and to help improve the lives of those with cancer now.
