Hundreds of woman are peeling their tops off to raise money for breast cancer in a new internet craze.
Bangers To Cancer was started by Michelle Kent, 35, as a way of carrying on the idea of Neknominating but ‘putting it to some good’.
After stripping down to a bra, participants are asked to ‘take a pic, post it on Facebook and nominate three others or more’, while also holding a sign which directs people to the group’s JustGiving page.

Ms Kent, from Cornwall says on her donation page: ‘In the first week alone we have managed to raise over £1,100. ‘Every day the amount raised is growing as the number of people that have posted pics, donated and nominated has grown.’ More than £3,000 has already been raised for Breast Cancer Care, with models Brandy Amy Brewer and Elinor Weedon also showing their support.

Bangers To Cancer is not associated with NipNominate, another breast-related nomination game sweeping social networking sites which sees participants ‘celebrate the beauty of the areola’ by photographing their nipples.
