Crowds flocked to Kensington's Red Cross charity shop earlier yesterday as hundreds of items of the Beckhams' clothing went on sale in a bid to raise cash for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan

Hundreds of people headed down to the charity store hoping to get their hands on one of the items the power couple donated earlier this week. The selection, which went on sale last morning, included a huge selection of Victoria’s shoes and dresses, as well as a number of David’s baseball caps and suits.

And it looks as though fans were more than happy with their purchases, as they exited the store armed with their favourite pieces, beaming from ear to ear. Speaking about the donation, Victoria said, “Typhoon Haiyan has devastated the Philippines, killing thousands and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.

The British Red Cross is now carrying out an enormous humanitarian relief project to help all those people in desperate need. David and I are supporting the Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign, and we urge everyone in Britain to do the same.”
