Against Breast Cancer Bra Appeal
We are proud to announce that we are a bra collection point on behalf of Against Breast Cancer.
The bra recycling scheme takes your unwanted or unloved bras and, through a network of bra banks, raises vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research.
The same bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with the recycling partners, this textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill by 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 £700 to fund their research.
Please help us to support this scheme by sending in your unwanted bras and depositing them in the recycling box which will be located in Student Services.
