P1020790aWhat an event!

For International Women’s day this year we collected over 1000 pre-loved bras in the Royals and the Civic Centre.

The bras will go to S I Poole for the Purple Teardrop campaign, which supports women in Kenya. Forty of them have set up small businesses to recycle the bras, employing other women. This means they can feed their families, keep their children in education and avoid the dangers of trafficking and the lure of the sex-trade.

Our local Mayor and local Mayor web MP signing petition web IWD web 1 cathy webMP came along to support and signed the Purple Teardrop petition to Ban Sex-for-Sale Advertising.

A Great Project!

Poole Soroptimists were delighted to welcome Soroptimists from Southend for the day.

SI Southend members had collected over 1500 pre-loved bras for the Purple Teardrop Campaign’s initiative that supports Free the Girls, a charity that kick-starts micro businesses for human trafficking survivors overseas using pre-loved bras.

Thank you Southend Soroptimists for collecting so many pre-loved bras and especially for coming to deliver them in person, we really enjoyed meeting you and showing you this lovely part of Dorset.
