Cancer Research UK carries out pioneering research across the country to help beat children’s cancers.
In the UK around 3,900 young people under 25 years old are diagnosed with cancer each year. That's 11 young people every day. Thanks to research more children are surviving cancer than ever before – in the 1970s more than a third of children diagnosed with cancer survived their disease beyond ten years, but now that is around three-quarters.
You can donate the items you no longer need all year round, so please continue to bring in as many bags as you can. Each bag could generate as much as £25 for Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens.
Your donated items are sold by Cancer Research UK shops to raise much-needed funds, or if they cannot be sold, are recycled. All money raised goes directly towards helping beat children's’ cancers sooner. You’ll find permanent donation points in every store so you can give up clothes for good all year round.
Since 2004 we've raised over £25.5 million for Cancer Research UK’s work through stock and cash donations with over £21.5 million supporting research into children's cancers specifically.
The campaign will run all year round, giving people more opportunities to donate and support, raising more funds for Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens and helping to beat children's cancers sooner.
