Along with this, retailer TK Maxx is in association with the charity to collect unwanted clothing, homeware, accessories that people wish to donate, which will later be resold at Cancer Research shops in the U.K.

The campaign known as The Give Up Clothes for Good Campaign which started in 2004and in this way has released as much as GBP 20 million.
