Are you a tiny UK size 4 (American 0)? Love designer clothing? Or just love celebrity memorabilia?
Then rush to the British Red Cross in Chelsea, London, where Victoria and David Beckham have donated their old clothes and shoes to help raise money for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Labels include Jimmy Choo, Dolce and Gabbana, Prada and of course, Victoria Beckham. In a statement, the pair encouraged other people to donate their old clothing for the cause, too: “Everyone has something in their closet they were holding on to – a dress, suit, or pair of shoes they thought they might wear again. Dig them out, bag them up, drop them off and give someone else the chance to buy them, raising much-needed funds for the Red Cross aid effort,” said Victoria.
Ahead of the sale, she tweeted pictures of a large pile of designer shoes (above) that she was donating to be sold at the shop, which is located at 69-71 Old Church Street in Chelsea.
So popular was the David and Victoria Beckham Philippine relief sale that the charity shop had to declare a one in one out policy, with a maximum of 50 people allowed in the shop at any one time. Some customers queued for more than an hour to get in, and each person was allowed to purchase only one item from the 20 boxes of goods donated.
The Beckham’s donations alone were said to have raised over £40,000 for the cause, and inspired countless others to generously donate, too.
