Bras of all colours, styles and sizes can be deposited at a quirky St Albans bank to raise money for a good cause.
Undergarments dropped-off in a St Albans office, Atlas Translations, are sent to Africa where they are too expensive to produce.
For every tonne of bras collected, a charity called Against Breast Cancer gets £700 to fund research.
Staff at the language company’s office also recently hosted a tea and home-made cake party to raise more than £400 for three breast cancer charities - Coppafeel, Against breast cancer, and Cancer Research UK.
Director of Atlas Translations, Clare Suttie, said: “We have had a great response from local women since we set up the bra bank at the end of last year and we’ve already filled it four or five times.

“We’re hoping that lots more people will hear about it and bring their old ones along - it’s amazing to think that the money we raised from our tea party is the equivalent of more than half a tonne of old bras.”
