Soroptimists with last year’s donations

Without wishing to be too personal, it could be a good time to think about treating yourself to a new bra.
There is a good way to recycle the used ones, so long as they are not too old. Once again, Salisbury Soroptimists are collecting gently used bras to send to Africa.

Can you help them beat last year’s record-breaking total of 2,527? Your donations were delivered to Afreebra, who sent them to the SMILE foundation in Ejura, Ghana.

In rural Africa, many women never dream of owning a bra – any disposable income is spent on food, children, husbands and lastly on women.

But with your help, this can change. Owning a bra can give a woman dignity and make her feel good.

Please drop your donations, before the end of June, at Five Rivers Leisure Centre, or contact our organiser Penny Joyce:, or leave bras at 60 Endless Street: Salisbury: SP1 3UH or contact us at

If you are able to collect bras from your local area, or workplace, the Soroptimists might be able to collect from you. And people are being urged to spread the word and ask anyone if they have a few gently used bras to donate.
