AN out-of-this-world couple who have completed the MoonWalk 16 times between them are gearing up for this year's event.

Irene and Graham Mcintosh from Inverkip are well known for their outrageous get-ups are urging people to join them at midnight in Edinburgh on June 8.

Breast cancer charity Walk the Walk organise the event to raise money and awareness.

The couple are well known for their original and eye-catching bra designs, transforming themselves in recent years into the Krankies, the "Bras Monkeys", as well as Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

Irene, 61,who signed up for the first ever event in 2006, says she will always sign up for The MoonWalk: "I love the MoonWalk because I experience the fun side of fundraising whilst raising money and awareness for a very serious cause. My sister has come through the traumas of having breast cancer and that's when Walk the Walk became even more meaningful and important to me. The MoonWalk is a hugely enjoyable event where you also make friends for life. It's a great way to improve your fitness whilst helping others. Age is no barrier, we are now in our 60's and loving it more than ever!"

It is open to people aged 10 and over and can sign up to one of four challenges.

The new moon, 6.55 miles, half moon 13.1 miles, full moon 26.2 miles or over the moon 52.4 miles.

The couple have signed up for the 26.2 miles challenge.

.Graham, 64, said: "The MoonWalk is a fantastic event and, although others have imitated the idea, to us it remains unique. Every MoonWalk has a theme, which we always try to fully embrace with our outfits. We really look forward to the announcement of each year's MoonWalk theme, then try to choose an appropriate and humorous team name to register under. We put as much effort into this side of participation, as we do training for the Walk! Putting smiles on faces really helps with the fundraising side of things which, after all, is the primary aim of getting involved. The MoonWalk is a great event, and Walk the Walk is a great cause to support".
