Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens and TK Maxx have teamed up to encourage people to donate their “preloved” clothes, accessories and homeware to mark Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The stars, including Olivia Colman, Billie Piper, Abbey Clancy, Jodie Kidd, Melanie Sykes, Angela Scanlon and Nicola Thorp, donated the outfits that they wore on the catwalk and these will be available to buy soon from Cancer Research UK shops.
Fashion photographer Jason Bell captured the famous faces behind the scenes, as our pictures show, as well as during an offi cial photoshoot on the catwalk.
TK Maxx’s Jo Murphy said: “For more than 14 years our customers and staff have generously helped to raise over £31million to support this vital work and once more we’re asking everyone to dig deep into their wardrobe and bring in a bag or two to support the campaign.”
The charity aims to help people up to the age of 24 suffering from cancer by raising money for research.
More children and young people than ever are surviving cancer in the UK but every year about 520 in this age bracket die from the disease.
Some who survive experience long-term side effects.
Give Up Clothes For Good promotes the re-use and recycling of goods and has collected in excess of 1.1 million bags of clothing and household goods, diverting 6,866 tonnes of unwanted items from landfill.
The Daily Express is supporting TK Maxx’s Give Up Clothes For Good in support of Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens. To help fund its work, donate a bag of pre-loved quality clothes, accessories and homeware at TK Maxx stores across the country.
