Come and follow the hilarious journey of the Cheshire Cats as they attempt to speedwalk their way to fundraising glory in the London Moonwalk. With aching feet, heaving bosoms and a few odd characters along the way, this is a journey they will never forget.

Having relunctantly agreed to costumes of decorated bras and cat outfits, team leader Hilary now pushes her agenda for doing the thirteen mile charity walk in record time, much to the annoyance of the rest of the girls: Siobhan, Yvonne, Vicky and new recruit Maggie. But there's dissent in the ranks and an unexpected sixth member joins the group that doesn't seem to meet the physical criteria.

Cheshire Cats is a cross between a chaotic girls night out and a real mission to support a cause close to many hearts, with plenty of laughs and a few tears along the way.
