Some of the UK’s favourite famous faces are partnering up with TK Maxx to help beat children’s cancers sooner. This year’s Give Up Clothes for Good campaign in support of Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens encourages people to donate clothes to raise vital funds for life-saving research to help beat children’s cancers sooner. Stars including Dame Helen Mirren, Nadine Coyle, Laura Whitmore, Kelly Brook, Christine Lampard, Julia Bradbury and Sophie Ellis-Bextor were photographed by world famous photographer, Jason Bell, a long-term supporter of the campaign.
One of the UK’s longest running charity clothing collections, Give Up Clothes for Good, launches in store from February 2018. Customers can donate quality items they no longer need in special clothing bins at their local store. 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.
