Project Uplift success

Inner Wheel Howick sorting the donated bras

More than 1000 bras and items of swimwear have been donated since the Times reported that Lily Whyte is a drop-off location for Project Uplift.

“It’s been a great success,” Juliet Campbell, co-ordinator for Project Uplift, says.

“We had 400 bras donated last week that were delivered to the Auckland co-ordinator.”

A further 600 were donated last week.

A small group of members from Inner Wheel Howick – a women’s friendship and service club – have been sorting through them.

“It makes a world of difference to New Zealand and overseas women,” Campbell says. “It’s been a fantastic ongoing response from the community.”

Lily Whyte remains open to donated bras and swimwear.
