Bootle-based Wild Thang produced four T-shirt designs with messages of support for NHS workers with 50% of the purchase price going to charity and a number sent to front line NHS workers
Merseyside brand marketing specialist Wild Thang has sold hundreds of limited edition T-shirts designed to highlight the work of our NHS heroes during the coronavirus epidemic.
From its base in Bootle, Wild Thang produced four T-shirt designs, each carrying a message of support and awareness for NHS staff. Half the purchase price of all T-shirts bought will go to good causes, and a number of T-shirts will be sent to front line NHS workers.
Managing director and founder Andrew Dwerryhouse told LBN that they had already sold hundreds of T-shirts across Merseyside and well beyond. He added: “We have had orders from across the UK and Internationally so we’re happy to report we have sold more than 370 T-shirt’s over the past few weeks.
“Every t-shirt purchased we are donating 50% to NHS Charities or a T-shirt to an NHS hero in their fight against the virus, to let those heroes get the message loud and clear, whilst also importantly promoting social distancing.
“Like many businesses in the UK it’s a worrying time, our sales have understandably slowed since lockdown so initiatives like this even in a small way will also help Wild Thang to reintroduce staff when the UK starts to return to normality.
“We cannot wait to be back up to full strength and doing what we do best, which as a company is to try and make a difference to those around us, it’s part of our ethos, and as we say – ‘It’s the Wild Thang Way’.”
One of the T-shirts was despatched, as a very special delivery, to Captain Tom Moore, who turned 100 on April 30, who has captured the nation’s hearts with his fundraising for the NHS.
Andrew added: “We have even had a few high profile T-shirt purchases, from the amazing comedian Johnny Vegas, who has been on tour around the hospitals in the North West giving his time up selflessly for those NHS Heroes, and many thanks to the very talented Celebrity Chef from Sunday Brunch on Channel 4, Simon Rimmer.
Wild Thang also had a message of thanks from Ellie Orton, chief executive of NHS Charities Together, who said: “Well done for all the support you are giving to NHS charities this is amazing.”
