At Nicola Jane, our aim is to restore confidence and femininity after breast cancer. To accomplish this, we offer a range of confidence-boosting bras and swimsuits - but we also want to directly support people that are affected by breast cancer. We are therefore proud to be working closely with our charity partner, Breast Cancer Haven.
Breast Cancer Haven focuses on offering “one-to-one emotional, physical and practical support to anyone affected by breast cancer”. They encourage people affected by breast cancer to visit their centres, no matter whether they have just received the diagnosis, during treatment or while recovering.
This year, we are proud to announce that 10% of every purchase made from the Grace range will be donated to Breast Cancer Haven. With this donation, we hope to support patients affected by breast cancer and help make a true difference.
Mastectomy Bra Donations
In addition to our partnership with Breast Cancer Haven, we are also collecting donations of mastectomy bras, prostheses, swimwear and wigs.
A lot of our customers are not sure what to do with their bras or prostheses when they no longer wear or require them, so for that reason, we are accepting donations that we collect and send to either The Hospices of Hope or The Bricon Foundation.
The Hospices of Hope is a charity is aiming to help cancer patients in South East Europe, where the health care services are not as developed as in the UK or other areas of Europe. The donations are distributed in Romania, Serbia, the Republic of Moldova and Albania. The patients that receive these are ladies that would not have access to mastectomy bras, swimwear or prostheses without the help of this charity.
Founded by a breast cancer survivor, the Bricon Foundation is aiming to help restore self-confidence in breast cancer patients in Nigeria, Africa. They provide counselling, assist in funding the treatment and help improve the care that the patients receive. The ladies that the Bricon Foundation takes care of often cannot afford special mastectomy bras or good quality prostheses and have to rely on donations.

At Nicola Jane, we also regularly take part in charity events to raise money and give back even more.
