Superheroes wear their pants on the outside and Hunstanton Lions took up the challenge to raise money for breast and prostate cancer charities on Saturday by doing just that.

At 7am Lions began the mammoth task of festooning the High Street with bras and boxers began – and fortunately local electrician Gerry Desroches brought along ladders that made the job much easier so that by the time shoppers arrived stings of boxers and bras were all in place.

President Jane Scott said: “Bras for breast cancer was the first event I took part in as a Lion four years ago and this year we are adding boxers and funds raised today will be splitequally between the two charities.

Lion Sheila Crake said: “People have been very generous donating these garments and it’s good to know that nothing will be wasted from today’s exercise because all the bras we don’t use go to Senegal via Oxfam where they are taken apart and re-made without wires and any leftover fabric is used for other projects. And when we take the display down tonight the bras will go to the Breast Cancer Charity.

Clearly the Lions had a great deal of fun themselves during the day, they raised £455 and Robert Williamson commented: “I’ve not had my hands on so many bras for years!”
