VIDEO: Bra bunting campaign for cancer charities

Waiting for Video...
 

An underwear boutique is giving breast cancer care a boost with its bra bunting campaign.

After the success of last year’s event, And She Knows, in The Courtyard, Bawtry, is encouraging women across the region to donate their unwanted bras in pink bins dotted around the town along with a £2 donation.

All funds raised will be split between Aurora and Breast Cancer Care.

Co-owners Sarah Craven and Emily Harbon were so impressed with the success of last year’s campaign- that culminated in the bra’s being displayed as bunting in Bawtry - they couldn’t wait to get stuck in again.

Sarah said: “We didn’t know how people would respond to it but we were overwhelmed with the support. Things are going really well again this year. Everyone is getting on board and so many businesses have the pink bins.”

The charity is particularly close to Emily and Sarah’s heart as they specialise in providing a post breast surgery fitting service.

Sarah said: “We understand that it can be a difficult time for women who have gone through breast surgery but we want to make them feel as comfortable as possible and at ease.”

The pink bins will be around until October 17. It is hoped last year’s total of 300 bras turned into bunting will be surpassed.

Players from both Doncaster Rovers and Doncaster Belles will be on hand to assist with the bra bunting campaign on the day.

Afterwards, any bras still in a wearable condition will be donated to women in Africa and any bras past their best will be weighed with the monetary value being donated to charity.
