Nathan Cooper, Content Controller at Bucks Radio, says he is delighted to continue to support Against Breast Cancer with Bucks Radio, having worked for a previous radio station that supported us with our bra recycling.
10 years ago, Nathan sadly lost his wife to breast cancer when she was just 31 years old. Nathan said “Who knows if the research being funded now by Against Breast Cancer would have a made a difference then, but I do know that it will help so many people in the here and now. Bucks Radio is delighted to have been able to help that research with our Bra Banks, and that so many individuals, families and companies donated. We will certainly be running the Appeal again later this year.
“At a time when so many local radio stations have been swallowed up by national companies, we believe it’s imperative to continue to highlight charities in our area and for local radio to continue to support and promote organisations like Against Breast Cancer.”
Allie Wilson, Customer Service and Recycling Manager for Against Breast Cancer, said that “we are very pleased to have Nathan and his team at Bucks Radio taking part in our bra recycling scheme again for the 2nd year in a row. In 2022 Bucks Radio and their listeners donated a whopping 176KG of bras to the charity and our recycling partner donated £123.20 to the charity which is used for our vital research into secondary spread breast cancer.”
Nathan and his team are determined to collect more bras this year to top their total from 2022.
