Nadine Coyle is joining a host of well-loved famous faces partnering with TK Maxx to take action for children and young people with disabilities in Ireland. This year’s Give Up Clothes for Good campaign in support of Enable Ireland encourages people to donate clothes, accessories and homeware to raise vital funds for children’s disability services across the country. Stars including Michelle Dockery, Dame Helen Mirren, Laura Whitmore, Kelly Brook and Christine Lampard were photographed by world famous photographer, Jason Bell, a long-term supporter of the campaign.
One of Ireland’s longest running clothing and homeware collections, Give Up Clothes for Good launched in store at the beginning of February 2018. Customers can donate quality items they no longer need in special donation bins at their local TK Maxx store. Donations will then be sold in Enable Ireland shops with ALL the money raised directly benefiting children with disabilities in local communities across Ireland. Each bag could be worth up to €25 for Enable Ireland.
Funds are used to support specific projects, including purpose built children’s service centres, transport services and specialist equipment and assistive technology for children and young people with disabilities.
Jo Murphy, Assistant Vice President of Corporate Responsibility at TK Maxx, said: “We have supported Enable Ireland since 1997 and to date our generous customers and employees have raised an incredible €2.8 million to support over 15,000 children and young people with disabilities and their families in local communities in 14 counties. We are proud to support Enable Ireland, helping them to continue their amazing work and to make a real difference to the lives of children with disabilities throughout Ireland.”
Fionnuala O’Donovan, Chief Executive Enable Ireland said, “We’re very fortunate and honoured to work with TK Maxx on what has been an incredible partnership and journey over the last 20 years. Give Up Clothes For Good has provided vital funding to our children’s services in 14 counties, and has helped us to continue to provide much needed support services to enable children with disabilities reach their full potential in life.”
To take part, simply donate unwanted clothes, accessories and quality homeware items at the special collection points in any TK Maxx store and nominate a friend, colleague or family member to do the same. Each bag could be worth up to €25 to Enable Ireland. Share your donations and nominations using #GUCFG at www.facebook.com/tkmaxxIE or www.twitter.com/tkmaxx_ie.
