Some wore them over and some underneath their high-visibility vests but they all wore them close to their heart with an aim to raise money and awareness for the annual Purple Bra Day event.

Now in its 11th year, Purple Bra Day raises funds for Breast Cancer Care WA.

Breast Cancer Care WA general manager Donna Rendell said one in eight women were diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes.

‘It’s so important to educate the community to be breast aware,’ she said.

‘Purple Bra Day is a fun way to send this message and also generate much-needed funding that we can use to support over 1000 WA women living with breast cancer each year.’

The group raised more than $14,000 for last week’s event.
