Our underwear reaches the right places
To ensure the underwear we collect is distributed to those who need it most, we work in partnership with a number of organisations. They help us to give all the brand new pants and bras we collect directly to the women and children who need our support, donating them for free. The ‘gently worn’ (laundered) bras we collect are also given to the women we help, as well as sold to family run recycling company Lawrence M Barry & Co (LMB) to help us raise the vital funds we need to support our work. For example, to pay the rent and electricity for our sorting premises. LMB send the bras they get from us to people in developing economies like Africa to help them earn an income by selling bras.
To date our pantastic supporters have donated a phenomenal amount of underwear, as you can see from our pantometer. All that underwear goes a long way.
