2017 is our sevemtj year running the Octobra campaign and we are looking forward to meeting the challenge again!
This is a joint venture with Professionals Bendigo and Fernwood Fitness Bendigo. We request the women of Bendigo to donate their 2nd hand bras and raise awareness for Breast Cancer Research for the month of October and all donated bras are then sent to underdeveloped countries through Project Uplift.
During Octobra (the whole month of October) collection bins are available at the following locations:
- Professionals Bendigo
- Fernwood Fitness
- Bendigo Weekly
- St John of God Hospital
- Bendigo Bank, Fountain Court branch.
- Bendigo Health
- Heathcote Hospital
- Tiny Sprout
- Catholic College
(Please make sure the bras are in good condition and if you are feeling generous you may even donate brand new ones!)
If your business is interested in contributing to this great cause, please contact Jacinta McIvor on 0418 592 228.
