Bras for Africa

11th February 2019
Community Focus

The Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest are collecting underwear for women in Africa. They would like new or lightly used, laundered bras and new pants in adult sizes. Women who do not have a husband, father or brother, or whose family do not have enough money, to purchase necessary underwear often experience attention of an inappropriate and unwanted nature, which can lead to being socially excluded from a community resulting in restricted opportunities for work and education for their children.

Currently over 800,000 items have been supplied to four countries in Africa. If you have anything to donate to this collection, please drop off at School House, Laxton, next to the Village Hall on High Street. This will be an on-going collection so please bear it in mind at any time. Thank you.
