People are being encouraged to donate their unwanted bras to raise money for a breast cancer charity.
Moonrise Lingerie, in Crown Glass Shopping Centre, is collecting bras to support the Breast Cancer Unit Support Trust (BUST).
Owner Tanya Hall has set up a bra bank inside the shop.
She said: “We have had a bra bank bin in our shop for three weeks and have had a phenomenal number of bras donated. To show people the support we have had and encourage more donations of old, unwanted bras, we hung them out on a line out the shop.”
BUST is a Bristol-based charity founded by patients to support the work of the Bristol Breast Care Centre at Southmead Hospital.
