Weston women join the Big Bra Hunt
PUBLISHED: 08:00 24 July 2012
CHARITABLE women have fished out bras from their wardrobes and got involved in Oxfam’s Big Bra Hunt.
The campaign is encouraging women to donate unwanted bras to help other women living in poverty. Most of the bras will be sent to Senegal, where Oxfam runs a social enterprise called Frip Ethique, to provide them to local market traders.
This will then provide jobs and enable women to earn a good salary and look after their families.
Weston volunteer Lisa Kirkhope has started a collection point with Rane Fitness at SweatFA in Winterstoke Road. With the help of Rane Spandler and members of the fitness club the team has collected armfuls of unwanted underwear to donate to the cause.
Lisa said they are still hoping for more donations so they can continue to support the campaign. For more information on the Big Bra Hunt visit www.oxfam.org.uk
