Iconic society magazine Tatler is once again calling on its closest designer friends to donate items to sell in Cancer Research UK shops to raise vital funds to help beat cancer sooner.
Following the previous successes of the Tatler Treasure Hunt, Cancer Research UK will run for the third time from 22nd September until the 5th October, with an abundance of designer goodies distributed secretly throughout Cancer Research UK shops across the UK.
Nearly 40 designers have donated items to the hunt which will be dropped off at Cancer Research UK shops at random.
Shoppers are being encouraged to keep visiting their local shop for the chance to get their hands on an exclusive designer item – at incredible discounted prices. Each item will be hidden alongside items that have already been generously donated by the local community.
There will be 65 designer items to discover, from contributing designers that include: Alexander McQueen, Anya Hindmarch, Belstaff, Bionda Castana, Bvlgari, Chanel, Charlotte Olympia, Coach, D&G, Daks, Diane Von Furstenburg, Dior, DKNY, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Kenzo, Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Max Mara, Michael Van Der Ham, Mulberry, Ports 1961, Prada, Pringle, Ralph Lauren, Roland Mouret, Rupert Sanderson, Temperley, Tod’s and Tommy Hilfiger.
Kate Reardon, editor of Tatler, says: “With nearly 600 Cancer Research UK shops across the UK not only will shoppers be able to grab a fantastic bargain but, thanks to the support of some of the world’s top designers, they are in with the chance of uncovering a real treat!”
Kate has supported Cancer Research UK for many years and was appointed a Member of Cancer Research UK in 2007.
Simon Ledsham, trading and operations director at Cancer Research UK, said: “We had such a great response to the first two Tatler Treasure Hunts that we were delighted to welcome it back for the third time. Shoppers can already uncover great deals and fantastic products in our high street stores but thanks to these generous gifts, there’s a little extra incentive to drop in and help us raise much needed funds for our life-saving research.”
Cancer Research UK relies on the generosity of supporters to help keep its shops stocked. Everyone is encouraged to donate any brand of clothes, shoes, bags, quality homeware, books, CDs and DVDs that they no longer need.
Cancer Research UK has nearly 600 high street shops across the UK, with all profits going to the charity’s life-saving work.
