To coincide with East Kent Mencap’s 75th anniversary, the Members Committee chose to design a range of colourful branded t-shirts which are available for people to buy. The t-shirts were created to raise awareness and money for East Kent Mencap.
East Kent Mencap Member, Amy, explained: “My design features a beautiful rainbow. These t-shirts are an important way for us to support the great work of East Kent Mencap and we will wear them with pride. This is the first time we have ever created supporter t-shirts.”
The Members Committee designed the t-shirts together with local Ramsgate printer, Colin Wonford, Redline Clothing Company. Members, Amy, Natasha, and Ellie, went to the printers to see their designs being printed.
Redline Clothing Company, Colin Wonford, said: “It has been great to work with the East Kent Mencap members, from the first design sketches to seeing their reactions when the first t-shirts were printed. The t-shirts have come out brilliantly.”
Fundraising Manager, East Kent Mencap, Jane Brooke, said: “The Members Committee are fantastic role models and show everyone what people with a learning disability can do. The creation of these amazing t-shirts is just one example of their achievements. I can’t wait to see everyone wearing them!”
Three designs are available and £3 from every sale of the t-shirt goes directly to East Kent Mencap.
