Octobra – 2013

2013 - ProfessionalsOff we go again! In 2011 we collected 1300 bras, in 2012 we collected 3000 bras and now  in 2013 – what will the magic number be?

Octobra officially started on the 1st October with the radio show on 3BO with Bec and Cogo, interviewing Jacinta and Karen from Fernwood. This year we are decorating the Poppet Head in Rosiland Park and the bras collected this year are being sent off to Papua New Guinea through Project Uplift.

Once again we have the great support of the following businesses with collection bins; Bendigo Weekly, Bendigo Bank, St. John of God, Bendigo Health, Fernwood Bendigo, Professionals Bendigo and Southern Cross Media Centre. The new ones on the block are ‘The Pop Up Op Shop” in Mollison St. This is a new Op Shop, opened just last month. This shop is run by volunteers and all proceeds go to Relay for Life and Fight Cancer Foundation. If anyone is cleaning out their cupboards please drop any items of clothing up to Andrea and Janelle as this will help their proceeds to their respective foundations.

Off we go OCTOBRA!
