TK Maxx wins award for charity efforts 

Swindon outlet beats the rest in the west
 
TK Maxx GiveGet campaign in Swindon
Swindon's TK Maxx superstore has been awarded for its efforts during a campaign by the retailer to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
 
The national GiveGet project, which offered customers the chance to donate old clothes in store, raised as much as 30 per bag for research in to childhood cancers.
 
And the Swindon store managed to collect more donations than any other outlet in the region - with more than 800 bags being generously given by locals.
 
Store manager Kate O'Shea said: "We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated their unwanted clothing for the GiveGet campaign - we couldn't have done it without your support!"
 
Last time the bi-annual campaign took place, the GiveGet charity 
raised an incredible 2.5 million worth of stock for Cancer Research UK, in one of the the biggest charity clothing collections ever.
 
This year GiveGet smashed that with a whopping 3.2 million.
