Hammocks for Hope – Heritage & Sons and Shires funeral homes team up with Against Breast Cancer

Heritage & Sons and Shires Funeral Directors have teamed up with Against Breast Cancer, to support their Hammocks for Hope initiative. Hammocks for Hope is calling for women in the region to deposit their used, new or surplus bras to the nearest Heritage & Sons donation station by Saturday 31st October 2020.

Against Breast Cancer’s bra recycling scheme takes unwanted or unloved bras and through their network of bra banks raises vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research. The same bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with their recycling partners, the textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill before giving them a new lease of life in developing countries such as Togo, Ghana and Kenya, where bras remain too expensive to produce locally.

Heritage & Sons and Shires, part of CPJ Field & Co, have homes throughout Amersham, Aylesbury, Bletchley, Buckingham, Wendover and Winslow. Founded in 1690, family-run CPJ Field is the UK’s oldest funeral directors.
