British singer Florence Welch, Canadian rockers Arcade Fire, and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson are among the stars who have donated clothing to a yard sale to raise money for Oxfam.

The Florence + The Machine frontwoman leads a group of celebrities, also including British singer Paloma Faith and U.K. rappers Tinie Tempah and Professor Green, who have donated second-hand goods to the Rumble In The Jumble event.

Proceeds from the celebrity sale, which raised more than $25,600 last year, will be donated to the Oxfam charity to help women in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The event will take place in London on Saturday.
