LOCK­ING­TON’S Cur­ran fam­ily have al­most 1000 do­nated bras bound for the Tor­res Strait Is­lands.

But be­cause of the over­whelm­ing re­sponse the fam­ily now needs help pay­ing to get them there.

‘‘It would nor­mally only cost me about $40 or $50 to get the bras we do­nate each year over there, which we are happy to pay for,’’ Colleen Cur­ran said.

‘‘But we now have four mas­sive boxes full of hun­dreds and hun­dreds of bras which will cost a lot more than that.

‘‘We can’t thank ev­ery­one enough for all the do­na­tions and the busi­nesses who put their hand up to be drop off points.

‘‘The re­sponse was over­whelm­ing.’’

For most Aus­tralian women hav­ing a bra is such a part of life they can’t wait to get home and get it off.

But for our neigh­bours on the Tor­res Strait Is­lands the price of this cloth­ing ne­ces­sity puts the com­fort of a bra dur­ing the day out of reach.

And for the third year the fam­ily are set to send over un­wanted or un­used bras.

‘‘We want to put the call out to a truck­ing com­pany who could get the boxes to Cairns or com­mu­nity or ser­vice clubs who wish to do­nate to the cause,’’ Colleen said.

‘‘Any­thing any­one can con­trib­ute would be great.’’

To do­nate money or sup­port the Cur­rans’ cause con­tact Colleen on 0407 868 437.
