The celebrity couple urges others to help support victims of Typhoon Haiyan which devastated parts of the Philippines.

Victoria and David Beckham are selling their unwanted and almost new clothes at a Red Cross charity shop in London in aid of victims of the Typhoon Haiyan.

The shop, at 69-71 Old Church Street in Chelsea, specialises in designer labels donated to the British Red Cross and is extending its opening hours from 11am until 8pm.

The Beckham collection includes shoes by Jimmy Choo and suits by Dolce and Gabbana (D&G) alongside tops, suits, trainers and dresses from the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer and her footballer husband.

The celebrity couple has urged others to help support victims of the typhoon.

"David and I are supporting the Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign and we urge everyone in Britain to do the same," Victoria said.

"Everyone has something in their closet they were holding onto, 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. "

David and Victoria's D&G suits are on sale for £600 and £800 respectively, and more if they turn out to be especially rare items.

The clothes are being displayed alongside the shop's other stock, with labels marking them as gifts from the Beckhams.

Mark Astarita, director of fundraising for the British Red Cross, said: "We are delighted to have Victoria and David's support for the British Red Cross Shop Drop for Philippines.

"Their generous donation will enable us to raise significant funds towards the enormous humanitarian operation currently under way."

Victoria Beckham earlier tweeted pictures of preparations for the clear out, including dozens and dozens of pairs of shoes.

There is one drawback for those in search of a bargain - the "almost new clothes" owned by Mrs Beckham might be too small for most people to wear, a shop assistant warned.

Philippine officials say the death toll from the typhoon has now passed 5,000.
