Bra Recycling to support Against Breast Cancer
Westgate Healthcare, a family-owned and run care group with care homes across Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Essex, is supporting Against Breast Cancer by encouraging their residents, friends, family and local communities to donate their unwanted bras to raise money for breast cancer research.
Against Breast Cancer has launched a bra recycling scheme that takes your unwanted and unloved bras to raise vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research. For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £700 to fund research. With over 30 million women in the UK you could really help make a difference!
The same bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with our recycling partners, our textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill before giving them a new lease of life in developing countries such as Togo, Ghana and Kenya, where bras remain too expensive to produce locally.
You can drop your unwanted and unloved bras to any of our care homes and we’ll take them to the local bra bank.
