Women shoppers are being encouraged to bring their unwanted bras to a Bury St Edmunds store to help raise funds for breast cancer research.
Bonmarché in the Cornhill has a BCR Global Textiles bra bank, where bras are collected to be recycled.
The store is supporting the Breast Cancer Campaign during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
One pound for every kilo of bras collected is donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign.
The bras needed to be in a wearable condition and brought in plastic bags.
Andrea Gillies, from the Cornhill store, said it felt great to be supporting such a good cause.
All of Bonmarché’s 263 stores nationwide have been encouraged to participate in the initiative.
