This year, it feels more important than ever to help raise money for those living incredibly tough lives. That’s why this year’s Red Nose Day, on Friday 19th March, may be one of the most vital events that Comic Relief has ever held.
One way we’re showing our support is by queueing up (virtually, of course) to purchase TK Maxx’s limited edition Red Nose Day t-shirts, featuring iconic characters from the nation’s favourite films including Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc. and The Incredibles.
So, safe to say these are some charitable tees the whole family are guaranteed to enjoy!
As an official partner of this year’s Red Nose Day, TK Maxx’s range of t-shirts for adult and children have been modelled and supported by a whole host of celebrities from the worlds of fashion, entertainment and sport.
Shot by photographer Matt Holyoak, famous faces including Keira Knightley, Anita Rani, Olivia Colman, Andrea McLean, Abbey Clancy, Carey Mulligan, James McAvoy, Jimmy Carr, Laura Whitmore, Felicity Jones, AJ Odudu, Vick Hope, David Gandy, Jamal Edwards, Emma Willis and the Hairy Bikers have modelled the must-have tees.
Prices start at just £6.99 for a kid’s t-shirt and £9.99 for an adult one, with at least £4 from every adult sale and £2.50 from every kid’s sale going to Comic Relief to help vulnerable children and young people in the UK and around the world.
The issues tackled by these vital funds include mental health support, tackling gender inequality and providing a sae place to life, to help children get the best possible start in life.
When it comes to sustainability, the t-shirts are made from Fair-trade certified cotton grown by farmers in Uganda, and supported by TK Maxx’s Sustainable Trade Programme. The income from this helps cotton farmers in Ugandan communities, by empowering the farmers and providing them with increased income, so they can send their children to school and improve their life chances.
‘Now more than ever it is so important to us to support Comic Relief’s incredible work, supporting vulnerable groups in the communities in which we live and work,’ says Deborah Dolce, senior VP, group brand and marketing director at TK Maxx.
Ruth Davison, Comic Relief’s chief executive, says: ‘The money raised will make a real difference to people’s lives in the UK and around the world. I’m proud that the t-shirts are also Fairtrade certified with cotton grown by farmers in Western Uganda, helping to create opportunities for local families and communities.”
Red Nose Day t-shirt are available online at from 29th January to raise money for Comic Relief.
