Bra-lliant effort for breast cancer charity
Blue Peter, eat your heart out. When it comes to getting excited about art competitions – and raising money for good causes – the big kids at Brass win hands down.
Who’d have thought the words ‘bra-art exhibition’ could send an office full of creatives into such a wild and excited frenzy?
Employees were gripped by bra-art fever as they grabbed their glitter, sequins, sewing needles, pens, paints and – er – plants, to produce what can only be described as a plethora of padded perfection.
From colourful and quirky to amusing and a tad risqué, the extent of wild and wacky bra-based imaginings knew no bounds, giving judges so much to marvel at it took them nearly two hours to decide on the winners.
In first place was Robyn, with her ‘number 8 ball’ bra, in second place was Peter, who was inspired by butterflies for his design, and scooping third place was a joint entry by Michelle and Amy with ‘titty titty bang bang’.
We told you there were some risqué designs!
The project raised £1,000 for The Haven, a charity that provides a range of emotional, physical and practical support to those living with breast cancer.
We’re thrilled with Brass’s fantastic support, says The Haven’s Tom Robertshaw.
The money they raised will help transform someone’s life as they try to cope with the impact of breast cancer.
John Morgan, chief executive of Bra-ss, adds,
We wanted to come up with something that would really enthuse and engage our staff, clients and visitors while raising awareness for breast cancer support services.“The response was very uplifting and our exhibition of weird and wonderful creations was quite a talking point.
