The ladies of Westfield are asked to support the 1066 Cycle Club in their initiative in collecting unwanted bras. These are sent to Africa for women to buy from market stalls, which gives them greater status and makes them less vulnerable to abuse. The income generated is given to breast cancer research and also 1066 Cycle Club projects like the bike stands recently installed at the recreation ground. Joan at ‘Bilbrough’, Cottage Lane is collecting the Westfield donations; bras can be in any condition as everything is recycled if they are not sold, but washed and clean, please. Just leave in a bag on her doorstep.
