WOMEN and men in Skegness attempted to form the longest bra chain across the town’s seafront on Monday to help raise awareness for a charity.

The initiative was set up by Oxfam to promote its Big Bra Hunt campaign which will be running thoughout April across the UK. Oxfam’s Big Bra Hunt aims to encourage and promote bra donations which will create essential opportunities for women in Africa and make a real difference to their lives.

British bras are highly valued commodities in African countries as they are complex to manufacture and very few developing countries have the facilities to make their own.

The Oxfam store in Skegness is appealing to women in and around Skegness to dig deep into their drawers and bring along any old, unused, worn or unworn bras that they no longer need to the store.
