Worn by you, loved by us

Tenovus, Wales’ leading cancer charity, launched a brand new campaign; ‘worn by you, loved by us’, which hopes to encourage people like you to donate their unwanted clothes to their local Tenovus charity shop and help the charity continue to support cancer patients locally. High street or high end, your fashion helps to fund the charity’s work!

Liz Rawlins, Campaign Manager, at Tenovus;

“Every single item donated to any one of our shops raises vital funds that enable us to support cancer patients and their families across Wales.

“One bag of clothing makes on average £20, and that £20 means we can continue to provide services such as treating people closer to home on our Mobile Cancer Support Unit, bereavement counseling and keeping our freephone cancer support line open 7 days a week”.

Tenovus are also encouraging people to take a look at what’s on offer in their shops - they held a photoshoot with Tenovus staff who were styled head-to-toe toe by stylist Dawn in clothing and accessories purchased from Tenovus’ shops in Cardiff and the Vale.

You can get involved with ‘worn by you, loved by us’ at www.tenovus.org.uk – find your local shops to donate your unwanted items to and check out the Tenovus fashion shoot and pick your favourite outfits or share the fashion shoot on your blog.

Pink and Cream Bomber Jacket £6.00 Whitchurch Road

Rosie

Rosie:
Dress - £9.00 Tenovus Albany Road
Cream Leather Belt - £2.00 Tenovus Barry
Floral Umbrella - £5.00 Tenovus Whitchurch Road

I adore all of those outfits but what I really love is the price! You can get a on-trend look from the Tenovus stores for a fraction of the price you would pay on the high street. Have you seen the shoot? what are your favourite looks?

I hope you dig out a few unloved items of clothing this weekend and donate them, it could do a great deal for someone in need.

  1. I quite often spend my weekends in Wales as we have a holiday home there, and I have to say Tenovus is one of the charity shops I always make sure I pop into as I've come up with some bargains in the past - I like that pink skirt!!
