Bra amnesty at town centre store

A lingerie business in Eastbourne will be staging a month long bra amnesty.

The event will run from September 13 until October 13 at Sobriquet at 18 South Street and the underwear will then be shipped to Senegal where the bras are in short supply.

Donations can receive a five per cent discount on a new bra and the five per cent will be matched as a donation to Oxfam.

The event is to be launched at 10.30am on September 13 to tie in with its official opening.

Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd is due to attend the event.
