Knutsford Market Hall supports bra charity
Knutsford Market Hall are joining the Against Breast Cancer bra recycling scheme that benefits women everywhere. The scheme provides an eye-catching pink bra bank where unwanted bras can be deposited.
Recycling bras prevents them from being dumped into UK landfills each year and the charity receives £700 from every tonne donated. The scheme directs textiles to Africa where they help create local commerce and the scheme is also helping to create jobs in the UK.
Bernadette Jones, Chief Executive said “We have received very positive feedback from retailers adopting the scheme and great warmth from the public for an idea that helps the environment as well as charity”.
Sandra Curties, Town Centre Manager said, “We are delighted to be able to help such a worthwhile cause. It is so easy to do and as well as raising funds we are helping the environment as recycling means less landfill. We hope lots of our customers come and visit Style Loft Boutique and donate their bras”.
Funds received from the scheme are put to work by the charity to support the research they are conducting into breast cancer, now affecting 1 in 8 women in the UK.
