The Bra Bank has returned to Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford Hospitals after the initiative was put on hold during the pandemic.
Staff, patients and visitors are now able to donate their unwanted bras to the bra banks, located at each of our hospital sites to help raise money for cancer research. The Trust’s Research and Development team partnered with national charity, Against Breast Cancer to launch this initiative to help collect used, new and surplus bras.
Fiona Maxton, Lead Nurse for Research and Development at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland Hospitals said: “We’re pleased to be able to bring the bra bank back to the Trust since it was really popular then we originally launched it in 2019. The team have been really keen to start this back up again and I’m proud to have a team that are constantly supporting our patients and their families who are undergoing new treatment of breast cancer.
“We all know how vital research is to improving care for those who have been affected by breast cancer, or any form of cancer. By supporting the bra bank initiative you are not only supporting research, but also certain areas of Africa where women have limited access to affordable bras.”
If you would like to donate your unwanted bras, please drop them off at the following bra banks:
- Main atrium, Peterborough City Hospital
- Information Zone, Main atrium, Hinchingbrooke Hospital
- Main atrium Stamford Hospital
