David and Victoria Beckham have come over all charitable, donating 20 boxes of their coveted clothing to the British Red Cross charity shop in Chelsea to raise money for the Typhoon Appeal.
The super star couple have handed over a haul of high-end goodies, including Jimmy Choo shoes and Dolce & Gabbana suits to the store, where the suits alone are expected to raise up to £800 for the appeal.
Fiona Liu, assistant manager of the charity shop in question, has confirmed that donations from the couple will be displayed alongside the shop’s other stock, with labels marking them as gifts from the Beckhams. The pieces will go on sale at 11am on Friday 22nd of November.
Regarding the generous donation, Victoria said: “David and I are supporting the Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign and we urge everyone in Britain to do the same. Everyone has something in their closet they were holding onto, 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.”
The Beckhams are no strangers to charity; in 2010 Victoria donated items from her designer wardrobe to the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign, raising close to £7,000, while in June, David donated his earnings from playing for Paris Saint-Germain to a pair of local children’s charities.
