Aidan Turner Supports Cancer Reseach UK Kids and Teens Campaign

You heard right, Aidan Turner is giving up his clothes... in aid of cancer research. Aidan is amongst several celebrities lending their support to Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens. The Give Up Clothes for Good campaign encourages people to donate unwanted clothing to TK Maxx stores, so that they can be sold in Cancer Research UK shops to raise much-needed money to fund research into children's cancers. Other celebrities taking part include Benedict Cumberbatch, Jerry Hall and Kate Winslet. If early indications are anything to go by Aidan's involvement is already garnering the campaign plenty of publicity.

This is a great cause we can all be proud to join Aidan in supporting. To support the Give Up Clothes for Good campaign you can take your unwanted clothes down to your nearest TK Maxx store, look out for special clothing bins in stores. Claire Rowney, director of Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens said: “Thanks to campaigns like Give Up Clothes for Good, we’re able to carry out more research to help find better and kinder treatments for young people with cancer. Back in the 1960s, only around a quarter of children with cancer survived. Today, three quarters are cured and our work has been at the heart of this. We’d love to see as many people as possible getting involved with this campaign, which will help us raise money to beat children’s cancers sooner.”
