Bra Bank for Tring

Living Magazines bra bank

High Street Baptist Church in Tring would like to add a Bra Bank to their Recycling Centre, becoming a collection point for anyone in the local area. However, to get an ABC Bra Bank up and running they need to collect 200 bras to begin with. Can you help?

Giving your old bras a new lease of life is a great way to raise funds for Against Breast Cancer.

This keeps textiles out of landfill, helps small businesses in Africa and raises funds from ABC’s recycling partner for ground-breaking research, based on the weight of the bras collected. Every £1 raised is vital in the work to find a vaccine against breast cancer and to look at ways to increase the survival of women and men who have the disease.

Successful ventures like this also keep many families in developing countries out of poverty and plenty of people in the UK in a job. Any bras that are genuinely beyond redemption will be dismantled and disposed of properly, and helps the textile recycler save 7.8 million tonnes of CO2 emissions every year by collecting, reusing and recycling thousands of tons of textiles.

Deposit your old bras in the labelled box located outside the kitchen at High Street Baptist Church, or you can hand them in to Polly in the Church Office.
