Deposit your used, new or surplus bras into our bra bank at our Retford Surgery!
Give them a new lease of life – raising vital funds for research into secondary spread breast cancer!
By depositing your bras in the BRA BANK, you will also be helping small businesses across the African continent to sell them at affordable prices.
The bra recycling scheme takes your unwanted or unloved bras which raises vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research.
The bank is placed at our Retford Branch and is for everyone to donate in the local area!
Our address is: Riverside Health Centre, Riverside Walk, Retford, DN22 6FB
The same bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with Against Breast Cancer recycling partners, their textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill before giving them a new lease of life in developing countries such as Togo, Ghana and Kenya, where bras remain too expensive to produce locally.
Successful ventures like this keep many families in developing countries out of poverty whilst providing employment for people at home in the UK. Any bras that are genuinely beyond redemption are dismantled and disposed of properly.
For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £600 to fund for research. With over 30 million women in the UK you could really help make a difference!
