Money raised from recycling bras will go towards charity’s pioneering research

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and local radio station Bucks Radio is collecting new, used and surplus bras to help fund vital research into secondary spread breast cancer.

The bras are recycled and the money raised is used by the charity Against Breast Cancer, who look at three interlinked areas of research - biochemistry, immunology, and diet and lifestyle.

The charity’s research is studying new ways that could help doctors identify and treat secondary breast cancer faster and more effectively in both women and men.

Bucks Radio co-founder Nathan Cooper said: “So many people know someone in their circle of family or friends who has battled breast cancer at some point – I lost my wife to the disease almost a decade ago.

"But more and more people are surviving breast cancer every year, and the work Against Breast Cancer are doing is vital.

"We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our appeal so far, but we still want more bras. So please, if you can, make a donation and help us fight this horrendous disease.”

For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £700 to fund its pioneering breast cancer research.
