A lingerie shop in Nailsea is asking women to donate their bras to give to homeless people.

Moonrise Lingerie, in Crown Glass Shopping Centre, has launched a new campaign to give homeless people access to a bra fitting service.

Once they have been measured, they will then be given a free bra.

Owner Tanya Hall said: “Homelessness can happen to any of us, at any time of our lives. Just because a person is homeless this doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be entitled to the luxuries in life.

“We hope this project will provide the ladies with a bra that fits and we also want them to feel positive about themselves during what must be a very difficult time in their lives.

“We have had such an amazing response so far from local ladies and received over 500 bras now. I think this is truly astonishing and so generous of everyone.

“The more donations we can get the more ladies we can help.”
