A LINGERIE business owner is asking customers to donate their unwanted bras to charity.
Gail Lockett, who owns Sheer Elegance Lingerie in Getliffe's Yard, Leek, has taken delivery of a 'Bra Bank' as part of the Against Breast Cancer charity's appeal for old bras, which will be donated to deprived women in Africa.
Gail, who has run her lingerie shop in Leek for 10 months, said: "Everyone knows at least one person who has been affected by Breast Cancer, so this is a good cause.
"Not only will the bras go to women who need them in Africa, but prior to that the bras are weighed in and Against Breast Cancer receives a donation. I have decided to start collecting unwanted bras for this charity this month as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month."
