A MOTHER and daughter duo strapped on their walking boots and headed for the streets for their latest moonwalk on Saturday.

Charlotte Chudasama, 42, of Gilbert Way, Braintree, was joined by her 14-year-old daughter Ciara, for the night-time walking marathon around London.

They joined 15,000 other men and women for the awareness and fundraising event which is organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.

Charlotte, who was doing it for the fifth time, said: "My mum died from cancer ten years ago, very quickly and suddenly and I felt so frustrated, angry and guilty that I couldn’t do anything to help.

"Then I found out about the moonwalk and wanted to take up the challenge and help to raise money for Walk the Walk."

So far they have raised £400 and Ciara, who goes to Alec Hunter Academy, was taking part in the full marathon event for the first time after doing the half event last year.

Charlotte said: "We hadn’t even finished the course before she asked me if we could do the Full Moon this year.

"Of course I said yes and we trained really hard, this year in snow, the heat and in the wind and rain."

The event started and finished at Clapham Common and went past landmarks such as Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace - some of which were lit up pink for the walkers
