It's time to clear out your cupboards - and bring your unwanted clothing, accessories and quality homeware to any TK Maxx store to raise life-saving funds for research into children's cancers, so more kids like Leah can make a full recovery.
Our 10 years anniversary
This September, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of a unique partnership between Give up Clothes for Good and Cancer Research UK. In those ten years, you've helped us raise a staggering £17.7 million with £13.2 million dedicated to help fund research into children's cancers. And in those ten years, more than 11,000 children in the UK have survived cancer.
We're celebrating with model Jerry Hall who launched the campaign in 2004 and says,
"I'm absolutely honoured to be supporting the campaign again. Thanks to the incredible work done by Cancer Research UK, more children than ever are surviving cancer."
Currently, 3 out of 4 children with cancer survive but with your help we want to make it 4 in 4. September 2014 is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Please, wear your golden ribbon (available in store) to support Cancer Research UK and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of our Give Up Clothes for Good campaign with Cancer Research UK, we hosted an exclusive exhibition of iconic imagery by long-time supporter and world famous photographer Jason Bell in central London. We showcased a selection of celebrity portraits for a campaign that has helped raise a staggering £13.2 million since 2004 to fund ground-breaking research to help beat children's cancers sooner. If you didn't get a chance to come along, don't worry as you can take a virtual tour of the exhibition right here.
