Pete Lawrence - Managing Director
I started Nicola Jane over 26 years ago with my wife Nikki . Over the years we have grown and moved with the times to become the UKís leading specialists in mastectomy wear. We have done this by providing the best combination of products from different suppliers, with quality and value for money and a first class customer service.
This is my 4th year of taking part in the moonwalk. Its great to walk around London and being up all night you can see that itís a city that never sleeps! It is good fun when you see people coming out of clubs at three in the morning, they canít believe their eyes as they see 1,000 of ladies in bras streaming past them. Men are definitely in the minority at this event so I get lots of encouragement from all the supporters who like to see a man in a bra! Lastly itís wonderful to be involved with a night that means so much to everyone taking part and those that benefit from the much needed money and awareness about breast cancer.
Amanda Duquenoy - Product Manager
The Moonwalk is such an amazing event that I look forward to every year. I have been walking the Moonwalk for the past 5 years and was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago Ė so I have walked it both as a supporter and the supported!
There is such camaraderie and encouragement from your fellow walkers and all the stewards; it makes you feel really special to be taking part and you get to see parts of London you never knew existed! It is such a sense of achievement (and relief!) when you cross the line and receive your medal knowing that you have raised lots of money for Walk the walk in the process!

I love my role at Nicola Jane. As Customer Service Manager I am always speaking to our customers and helping out with enquiries as well as making sure we are always giving a first class customer service. I also meet with Breast Care nurses and attend Support Groups so am always in contact with the people that are directly benefiting from the work that charities such as Walk the Walk provide.
The moonwalk is such an inspiring event and I really enjoy taking part. This will be my second full moon walk (26.2 miles!!) and although I am slightly dreading the inevitable pain and weariness I canít wait to raise funds and awareness for such a good cause.
