Redlands bra drive will help poor women in Vanuatu

Three Rotary members with links to Vanuatu in the South Pacific are conducting a Bra Drive in the run up to Christmas.

DONATIONS: Sue Reid, Di Thompson and Therese Thorpe from Secrets 4 Women, the main drop point for the bras.

They want Redlands women who have unwanted bras in their cupboards in good condition to donate to this worthy cause during the season of giving.

Coordinators Di Thompson and Sue Reid said the bras would be taken to Vanuatu and distributed to women in poor rural villages, most of whom had never owned a bra.

The Bra Drive will be helped out by Therese Thorpe from Secrets 4 Women Lingerie Shop at 123 Bloomfield St, Cleveland, who has offered to be a drop off point for donations in the Cleveland area.

Therese has supported previous bra drives that have seen many women in other Pacific regions receive the gift of a bra, something most Australian took for granted.

“What a wonderful way for us all to experience the joy of giving while also spring cleaning our lingerie drawers,” they women said.

Therese is offering a 10 per cent discount on bra purchases if the buyer trades in a bra in good, clean condition of any size.

Contact either Di on 0408-985527 or Sue on 0407-133240 for details on other drop off points or pick ups if needed.
