Shoppers line up for Beckhams’ typhoon Yolanda fund drive
by FFE Entertainment News staff
Football star David Beckham and his wife Victoria of Spice Girls donated heaps of their clothes and accessories to the Red Cross shop in Chelsea, west London yesterday to help raise funds for typhoon Yolanda victims.
The collection, which drew a long queue of fans and fashionistas rushing to join this one-time-only sale, included labels like Chanel, Jimmy Choo and Dolce and Gabbana.
Victoria’s heels were lined up along the wall of the shop and were priced at £100 a pair. Also up for sale are Victoria’s Spice Girls hoodies and shirts. Meanwhile, pieces from David’s Manchester United days were also up for grabs. His donations were clearly marked out from the rest to alert the football star’s fans. Old belts were priced at £25 while the most expensive pieces were the jackets at £250.
Victoria said ‘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.’
One day before the Red Cross sale, Victoria tweeted a picture showing the pile of designer shoes she donated to the shop.
