A CHARITY shop has called for women to donate unwanted bras to be sold in Senegal.

Oxfam in High Street, Stamford, is taking part in the Big Bra Hunt and hopes to get as many donations as possible in the coming weeks.

The garments are highly-valued in African countries and Oxfam has joined with a project called Frip Ethique to send unwanted bras to the area to be sold on by disadvantaged women.

Shop manager Maggie Bentley said: “We have had a fantastic response so far. I think it has made people release where their donations go. And it is all done ethically.”

The Big Bra Hunt lasts through April and the shop is looking for as many donations from individuals and women’s groups as possible.

The shop is also looking for volunteers. To donate or to join the team simply drop into the store.
