Bras that is….
Last year McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead collected over 300 bras for the Breast Cancer Campaign appeal and with your help wan t to smash that target this year! The hospital are no strangers to meeting women who have old bras, usually, as by the time they leave the hospital they are smaller or bigger in the chest area and are keen to indulge in a spot of lingerie buying for their new shape.
Well now the old bras that everyone seems to have lurking in the back of their drawers can be put to excellent use by donating them to us for charity. BreastTalk.co.uk raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign by giving the bras they collect to BCR Global Textiles. BCR sell them to traders in third world countries which helps support and supply their own local economy.
BCR Textiles pay per kilo of bras collected and send a cheque directly to UK charity Breast Cancer Campaign. BreastTalk.co.uk does not handle any moneys raised nor do they take any admin fees - every penny is donated.
So far their bra appeal has helped raise £8356 and this total will keep rising thanks to you sending us your old bras.
What Types Of Bra Can You Donate?
- Any style - but not too sexy or see through.
- Any Size - Especially very large or very small sizes.
- European sizes are fine.
- Maternity or Nursing bras are fine.
If you would like to help us raise even more bras than last year’s collection, please bring your old bras along to McIndoe Surgical Centre in Holtye Road, where you can drop them off through the month of October 2012. At the end of the month, we will package all donated bras up and send them over to Breasttalk for their appeal.
We look forward to your donations!
McIndoe Surgical Centre – for the life you want to live.
