Institute joined up with TK Maxx as the clothing retailer continued to be a big support of research into children’s cancers in the UK, helping fund pivotal clinical trials for life-saving treatments.

TK Maxx customers have helped raise over £13.5 million for Cancer Research UK since 2004, of which, £9 million has gone towards helping beat kids’ cancer.

In 2012, customers raised £3.1 million, an equivalent amount of which, funded almost half of Cancer Research UK’s research into children’s cancers that year. This includes pivotal clinical trials testing new, potentially life-saving drugs. TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK have been running a joint clothing collection campaign since 2004.

Together, they’ve already raised £13.5 million – £9 million of which has gone into research to help beat children’s cancer.

This year TK Maxx will once again be calling on shoppers and employees across the UK to dig deep into their wardrobes and donate their unwanted clothing, accessories and quality homewear at any TK Maxx store throughout the year for Cancer Research UK, to raise funds and help beat kids’ cancer sooner.

The Drumahoe club asked players. committee members, youth team players and supporters to donate any unwanted clothes, which they presented to TK Maxx last week.

This is the first time the campaign will run all year round, giving people more opportunities to donate, raising more funds for Cancer Research UK and helping to beat kids’ cancers sooner.

All the money raised will help fund research into children’s cancers.
