A women’s gym has given a hospice extra support by donating old bras.
Fitness enthusiasts at Gymophobics in North Street, Hornchurch, gave away their old undergarments to Saint Francis Hospice’s charity shops to help raise money for its services.
Gym owner Debbie Thomas has spearheaded the campaign to get gym members to donate after her dad was cared for by the hospice.
Debbie said: “He attended their day therapy unit and in the last few weeks of his life he had a bed in their inpatient unit. The care he received was superb, second to none – being cared for by such compassionate nurses gave him peace of mind.”
The Havering-atte-Bower hospice is urging people to donate their bras to any of its 15 shops or at the Gymphobics gym.
