A Redruth cancer campaign has gone global.

Bangers to Cancer was set up in response to the neknomination craze.

That sees people down a drink then do something stupid before nominating a friend to do the same.

In the anticancer version women and men post pictures of themselves in a bra - to raise money for research into breast cancer.

So far the charity fundraiser has got as far as Canada, South Africa and New Zealand and raised thousands of pounds.

Organiser Michelle Kent told Pirate FM: "It's just really taken off. People have started telling all their friends on Facebook. Then we were getting messages in, with men doing it, dressing up. Somebody's done a really nice, sparkly sign they spent ages painting - it's just got ridiculous.

"It's hours of our life. We're having to manage the page on Facebook, make sure the links are correct and that everyone has adhered to the rules because we've got restrictions.

"It's quite surreal really."
