It’s time to start decorating your bras and planning your costumes for this year’s annual Bra Dashes.

Everyone from work colleagues, schools, sports teams, clubs, pubs, Women’s Institutes and Young Farmers are encouraged to get involved in the event, in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer Isle of Man.

Now in its 10th year, the event has raised more than £145,000 for the charity.

The four Dashes – in Douglas, Castletown, Ramsey and Peel – take place on May 2 and May 3, raising money towards the charity’s aim of a world freed from the fear of breast cancer.

The first Dash will start from the Marks and Spencer car park entrance, in Drumgold Street, Douglas, at 1.15pm on Friday, May 2.

It will be started by Douglas Mayor Carol Malarkey. Call Angie on 498864.

Fifteen minutes later, the Castletown Dash will start from the Market Square. Call Tracy on 450217.

On Saturday, May 3, Peel Dashers will leave from the Market Place at 11.30am. Call Lindsay on 422853.

And finally, Ramsey Bra Dash will take place on the Saturday from Shoprite, at 12.30pm. Call Rosy on 472548.

At each of the four Dashes, those taking part dressed up in teams of four or more could win £50 sponsored by Lloyds Banking. It is also sponsoring prizes for the fastest/best dasher (£25, ) best dressed dasher (£25) and best dressed child (£10).
