This February, the Clothes Show presenters Caryn Franklin, Jeff Banks, and Brenda Emmanus, will be teaming up once again to support Cancer Research UK’s ‘Donate for a Difference’ campaign.

Cancer Research UK is encouraging people to donate their unwanted clothes, household items, CDs, DVDs, toys and games to one of the charity’s 600 shops across the country. Last year, over £66million of the charity’s income came from donations made to its shops, providing vital funds for research into cancer.

Caryn Franklin said: “We all have clothes in our wardrobes that we never wear, for whatever reason – too big, too small or just not right. What’s no good for you could be perfect for someone else and at the same time, by donating it to a Cancer Research UK shop, you can help beat cancer. Each bag donated can raise up to £30, which will go towards beating this terrible disease.”

Jeff Banks said: “I’ve been meaning to sort out my wardrobe for some time and this campaign has given me the perfect excuse. I’ll be taking the clothes I rarely wear to my local Cancer Research UK shop and I urge other people to do the same. If every person took along just one bag, imagine the amount of money we could raise for research into cancer.”

Brenda Emmanus said: “People are really getting into visiting charity shops to find great bargains. By donating clothes to Cancer Research UK, you’ll be helping a hugely important cause – and it’s always nice to know that our much-loved outfits will go to a good home.”
