BRAS! If your’e having a clear out please note that most charity shops don’t take bras but as they often cost us a lot of money they are too nice to throw in the bin. A UK based charity that sends unwanted bras to African villages to improve hygiene and prevent the rape of young girls and women, as wearing a bra in some villages is a sign of wealth, status and power. If the bra is too tatty they recycle the material and metal to raise money to buy underwear. So if you’re throwing out your old bras, whatever state they are in free up some space in your drawers, save them from going to landfill. Please send them here instead – Smalls for All, 108 Buchanan Crescent, Eliburn, Livingston, EH54 7EF.
