Where to get rid of old bras

After following various bra intervention threads, I finally bit the bullet and went for a bra fitting. I used to wear 40C but to my surprise I'm now need 38DD (much to my DP's delight - aren't men funny!). Hence I'm in the process of buying new bras and getting rid of old ones.
I normally take old clothes to the Salvation Army clothes drop-off point, but has anyone any better ideas?

How do you get in touch with Refuge? I have lots of bras as well which no longer fit

If they’re not in good enough condition for a refuge.

Contact your local Women's Aid centre, they will put you in touch with someone who can take a donation to your local Refuge.

What a great post, I didn’t know about donating old bras, always just binned them!

I sent mine here http://www.smallsforall.org but just google "donating bras" and a few come up.

Thanks for all the advice. I particularly like the 'smallsforall' site, so thanks Bagel for that.
