We are supporting a bra recycling scheme in order to raise money for breast cancer research. The nearest Bra Bank for women in Dudley can be found in the reception area at 157 Old Park Road Dudley and has been provided by the breast cancer charity, Against Breast Cancer
Wearable bras donated to the Bra Bank will be taken to Africa where there is a short supply of affordable bras.
Against Breast Cancer will also receive a donation based on the weight of the bras collected – so every bra counts. Every £1 raised is vital in enabling the continuation of work by the charity to find a vaccine against breast cancer and to look at ways to increase the survival rate of women who have the disease.
The project keeps textiles out of landfill (helping towns to meet its recycling targets), as well as helping small businesses in Africa
Every year in the UK, thousands of bras end up in landfill sites, while in Africa there is a demand for affordable bras
Bras deposited in a Bra Bank are taken to developing countries where traders support their families selling textiles locally.
Any bras that are beyond redemption are dismantled and disposed of properly.
Club owner Bal Dhillon l said: “Ladies often wonder what to do with bras that are no longer suitable or don’t fit them anymore so this is a fantastic way to get rid of your old bras whilst donating to a charity as well as keeping textiles out of landfill and helping ladies in Africa.”
Members of the public are welcome to drop their unwanted bras into the Bra Bank, which is situated in the reception area at energie fitness for women, 157 old park road, dudley, dy1 3ne
