Scottish pop legends the Bay City Rollers are showing their support for this year’s MoonWalk.

The band have allowed charity Walk The Walk – which organises the event – to use the yet to be released single Boomerang in radio adverts.

Starting this year from its historic new home, Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, Scotland’s 2016 MoonWalk will see thousands walk through the streets at midnight on Saturday, 11 June.

Wearing the charity’s trademark decorated bras, everyone will be uniting to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. 

With this year’s Rollers-styled ‘swing your tartan’ MoonWalk theme, everyone really will be partying Scottish style.

We’re ecstatic to lend our support to such a fantastic charity which has done so much great work over the years

John McLaughlin, manager of The Bay City Rollers, who have just completed sell-out reunion gigs, said: “We’re ecstatic to lend our support to such a fantastic charity which has done so much great work over the years.

“My own wife Sharon has taken part in The MoonWalk Scotland herself, and I’ve seen what happens on the night at first hand. It’s a truly wonderful event.” 

Poster Girls Gael Roy, Jackie Wyllie, Claire Vickers and Julie Sinclair are featured sporting tartan in publicity material for this year’s MoonWalk Scotland.

Gael said: “We are delighted to be poster girls for such a fantastic event. We take part year on year, as not only is it a personal challenge, but it helps raise money for such a wonderful charity which has supported people close to us.

“It is very well organised, great fun and the atmosphere on the night is second to none. I would highly recommend signing up, it’s a great accomplishment and you’ll raise much needed funds for such a brilliant cause.”

This year, breast cancer charity Walk the Walk is celebrating 20 years of walking the walk.

Millions have already been granted towards groundbreaking research and to help those that have cancer in Scotland.
