Is this the poshest charity shop donation ever? Victoria Beckham is donating daughter Harper's designer outfits to charity.

The three-year-old's second-hand clothes will go on sale at the Mary's Living & Giving shop in London's upmarket Primrose Hill later this month in aid of Save The Children.

The Spice Girl-turned-designer has especially hand-picked 25 individual outfits, including shoes and jackets teamed with dresses, tops and jeans, from fashion labels such as Chloe, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Gucci and Marc Jacobs.

Beckham said: "I am delighted to be supporting the wonderful work of Save the Children through the Fashion Saves Lives Sale. As a mother, I passionately believe that all children, wherever they live, have the right to a happy, healthy life. Everyone out there can do their part by purchasing or donating, ensuring children all around the world have the opportunity of a brighter future."

One hundred per cent of the money raised will go towards Save the Children's work to end child deaths from preventable causes by 2030.

Currently 17,000 children die every day from preventable causes such as pneumonia and malaria due to a lack of adequate health services. Save the Children is backing a campaign to ensure that at the UN summit in September world leaders make a commitment to ensuring that by 2030, every child has the basic healthcare that they need to survive.

Fronted by Save the Children ambassadors Erin O'Connor and Mary Portas, the Fashion Saves Lives sale will take place on internet auction site eBay between June 18 and 28.
