More than 200 bras have been donated to support a charity helping women and teenagers living below the poverty line in South Africa.

Sidmouth Running Club member Claire Ashby organised the collection at Sunday’s Women Can marathon for Zabra.

Ladies left their donations at the marquee on Tipton playing field for Claire to collect and send off to the charity.

The garments will be given to women in need, including young girls who would like to play sport.

Claire, who also ran the marathon, said it was a great opportunity to raise the profile of the charity.

She added: “I was very pleased with the response and great effort from all the ladies who contributed.

“The charity provides bras to women and girls in South Africa who would otherwise be unable to afford them.”
