Raise Funds For Against Breast Cancer

Please help us raise funds for this charity – I am sure we all know someone who has received a breast cancer diagnosis.
You can deposit your old/unwanted bras in the bra banks at the Old Stables Farm Shop and at Peak Movement Clinic.
We also have a box in the shop for old phones, digital cameras, sat navs, printer cartridges/toner, cables, circuit boards, cds, dvds, hard disc drives and other office electronics.
When the boxes are full, they will be sent off for recycling to raise vital funds for research to improve detection, treatment and increase survival after breast cancer diagnosis.
