Claire joined a group of cross party MPs and peers to do the MoonWalk  from Battersea Power Station to power walk a Half Moon (13.1 miles) through the streets of London at midnight to raise funds for the cancer charity Walk the Walk.

“The MoonWalk was a fantastic experience,” she told Marlborough News Online. “I was delighted that the group of MPs and peers together raised nearly £5,000 for Walk the Walk, which has raised more thanr £85 million for breast cancer charities since the first Walk, 17 years ago.

“My legs had not quite recovered by Sunday afternoon but I managed another three sponsored miles around West Woods near Lockeridge where the bluebells are just coming into bloom – finally.”
