Postboxes across Tranent have been decorated with colourful toppers to celebrate the Moonwalk charity event in Edinburgh last weekend.

Margaret MacLeod, 62, from knitting group the Winton Woollettes, has been working on several Moonwalk-themed knitted toppers for postboxes in the town.

Moonwalk Scotland, organised by Walk the Walk, a charity group focused on fighting breast cancer, took place at Holyrood Park in Edinburgh on Saturday.

The 26.2-mile walk attracted thousands of participants, including Margaret.

She said afterwards: “The walk was a big challenge this year again and was great to take part in. We got fantastic weather too.”

The Tranent fundraiser not only completed the Moonwalk but challenged herself further by completing eight laps around Arthur’s Seat in the morning before the walk.

She said: “I wanted to do something extra to make it a real challenge, so I was already tired ahead of the walk after the morning challenge.”

The fundraiser also plans to take part in this week’s Kiltwalk.

The Winton Woollettes, who were founded by Margaret and her friends last year, worked hard to create postbox toppers to display in Tranent for the Moonwalk.

All the toppers are themed around the charity, featuring knitted bras, breasts, lots of pink and the charity logo.

Margaret said: “A lot of work went into it. We just wanted to do something special to raise awareness of the charity, link to the donation page and brighten the town.

“There’s lots of boobs, lots of pink and plenty of colour!”

The displays can still be found throughout the town, including at Carlaverock Avenue, Waterloo Road and at Bannatyne gym in Newcraighall.
