Picture special: Moonwalker raises pounds 2,600.

A KIND-HEARTED Kylie fan has raised pounds 2,600 for a breast cancer charity.

Huddersfield-born Lisa Dick walked 26.2miles through central London on the annual Moonwalk.

She was one of 15,000 people to dress up for the marathon walk.

She has taken part in two previous Moonwalks, each time dressed in homage to her idol Kylie Minogue, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2005.

But this year she covered herself in cobwebs, bats, laces and tattoos.

Lisa, a graphic designer at Cadbury's, said: "This year was one of the toughest and most meaningful.

"Since registering for this challenge I know two people who have lost their battle with breast cancer. A friend was also diagnosed last year and is on the road to recovery.

"That's what really inspired me."
