Chippy Girls Wear Bras!

No, that shouldn’t be news – but these are not your normal bras.

A group of Chippy women are to don their specially-decorated bras to walk 26 miles in aid of charity.

The girls – including teachers, nurses and students – are to take on the Moonwalk on 10 May, in aid of breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.

The Moonwalk starts at Clapham Common in south London, and will feature 15,000 men and women walking alongside those taking part in the Half Moon – a 13 mile route.

The Chippy Girlies, as they have called themselves, include Susan Frater, Jenny Fisher, Wendy Smart, Becky Fagan, Lizzi Findlay,  Alex Sears, Tanya Harrington, Caroline Court and Kat Alden.

They have been training for the event with regular long walks around the local area, but it’s not all hard work – as Jenny told the News, “How often would you otherwise get to spend two and a half or three hours with friends, talking?!”

They are currently fundraising, hoping to raise £1,000 for the charity. You can donate to them at their fundraising page here.
