MandMDirect.com have teamed up with Chrissie, Madness and Paul Weller to design three exclusive t-shirts in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
The t-shirts were inspired by the distressed look of 60s and 70s band tee’ and include vintage prints of the legendary artists, who have all performed at Teenage Cancer Trust's annual concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. There are only 1,500 of each design and only available at MandMDirect.com. Each t-shirt is £19.99 with 100% of the profits (at least £10.00 from each sale) being donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. Perfect for the festival season, the tee’s are selling fast.
MandMDirect.com, the UK’s leading online designer outlet have been supporting Teenage Cancer Trust for over six years. Through staff fundraising, donations from sales and bespoke products they have raised over £740,000 for the charity. Steve Robinson, MandMDirect’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to continue our support for Teenage Cancer Trust and these T-shirts are just another fantastic way of doing so”.
Siobhan Dunn, Director of Fundraising at Teenage Cancer Trust adds: “It is fantastic that MandM Direct are donating the proceeds from these t-shirts to Teenage Cancer Trust. We are grateful for all the fundraising they have done over the last six years and for what they will continue to do.”
Every day in the UK, six young people are told they have cancer. Usually placed on a children’s ward or with elderly patients, young people often feel extremely isolated when facing a cancer diagnosis. Teenage Cancer Trust builds units in NHS hospitals that offer young people specialist care, bringing them together so they can support each other in an environment suited to them. The units’ home-from-home feel creates a sense of normality, containing social areas with pool tables, comfy sofas, music, laptops, wifi, Skype and TVs. They are bright and vibrant and designed to give young people the very best chance of a positive outcome.
There are now currently 17 Teenage Cancer Trust units across the country. The charity plans to build a further 16 so that all young people needing hospital treatment for cancer across the UK have access to the dedicated, specialist support they provide.
As well as specialist units, Teenage Cancer Trust also funds a number of services all with the same goal – to help young people fight cancer. These include clinical and research staff, an education programme for schools, family support networks and an annual conference for young cancer patients.
