Have you looked into your wardrobe recently and noticed how many items you never wear?
Isn't it time to 'detox' your wardrobe and help Cancer Research UK at the same time?
One bag of clothes alone can do the world of good, so rather than slimming yourself down in January, slim down your wardrobe. Television presenters Dawn Porter, Konnie Huq and Lorraine Kelly are all backing the 'Detox Your Wardrobe' campaign.
Charity shops are always in need to good quality donated items to sell. This is the perfect excuse to clear out all your unwanted clothes, books, DVD's and unwanted Christmas presents.
Find out what you can donate, then simply drop your items into your local Cancer Research UK shop.
Not only will you be de-cluttering, you’ll also be helping to raise money to fund the charity’s lifesaving research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer so please get involved!
If you don't live near a Cancer Research shop or would like to make a little money from your unwated clothes then you can sell on ebay. You can make a profit and make a difference at the same time by donating a percentage of the profits to Cancer Research UK.
Your donated items could be worth more than you think!
Last year Cancer Research UK raised over £52 million from generous donations of clothing, household and entertainment items made to their shops. A bag of donated clothes could sell for £30 – enough to buy two lab coats to protect scientists from harmful chemicals, and their experiments from contamination.
I've chosen some things to drop off tomorrow-
Are you going to do the same?
