Local stars join campaign raising £30m for cancer charity 


Some of the UK’s favourite faces in fashion, music and film have teamed up with retailer, TK Maxx to launch this year’s Give Up Clothes for Good campaign, encouraging people to donate clothes to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens to help beat children’s cancers sooner.  In the UK around 4,200 children and young people (aged 0 – 24) are diagnosed with cancer each year.[1]

TK Maxx is the biggest corporate supporter of research into children’s cancers for Cancer Research UK and has raised more than £30 million for cancer research since 2004 through stock and cash donations.

As part of the UK’s longest running charity clothing collection Laura Whitmore, Daphne Selfe, Ore Oduba, Jim Chapman and Lisa Snowdon were photographed by world famous photographer, Jason Bell, a long-term supporter of the campaign who helped TK Maxx launch the Give Up Clothes for Good in 2004.

The clothes donated will be sold in Cancer Research UK shops with all the money raised going towards research into cancers affecting children and young people. Each bag could be worth up to £30* for Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens.  Give Up Clothes for Good will help transform the items customers no longer need into funds for life-saving research into children’s cancers.
