Wild Thang wanted to make a difference that’s why for each t-shirt purchased we have committed to donate 50% of the purchase price to NHS charities or send a t-shirt to NHS staff on the front line of the coronavirus epidemic

Andrew Dwerryhouse, Wild Thang Managing Director commented:

“We wanted to make a difference so the initial idea for the NHS themed t-shirts came about after we created screen-printed social distancing t-shirts as our last job before lockdown for our amazing team before some started
working remotely at home. The feedback from our friends and family was awesome and they loved the design, but still we wanted to do more.

As a company we have followed all the government guidelines to promote best practice for anything related to Covid-19 so we can help protect the most vulnerable, it’s been one of the toughest times in our 24 year history.

Recently we have delivered a large consignment of clothing - 28 large bags of t-shirts, hoodies and tracksuit bottoms to Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, this was after hearing they were in desperate need of clothing for frontline staff working tirelessly for their patients, this was an attempt to reduce infection when they to travel to and from work in their own clothes before changing into their uniforms/scrubs once inside the building. After this we
donated branded tote bags to the staff at Liverpool Women’s Hospital to carry their necessities to work.

Currently taking pride of place at WT HQ is a banner with our support message to all the key workers during this difficult time.

We have a saying here - ‘It’s the Wild Thang Way’, so we wanted to do more.

The staff social distancing t-shirts and garments we donated got us all thinking how else can we make a difference, that’s when we came up with another idea,
so all those NHS heroes really know they will never walk alone and we can continue to raise awareness/make a difference in the fight against Covid-19, one t-shirt at a time!

Our creative team designed a range of limited edition t-shirts with a simple concept, if someone purchases a t-shirt to show their appreciation to those NHS heroes Wild Thang will either donate 50% of the purchase price to NHS charities or send a t-shirt to the NHS frontline staff, because we know first-hand they urgently need extra clothing.

We then shared our idea on social media and the feedback was amazing, lots of people thought it was an awesome idea and loved the designs. So the next step was to shortlist the most popular designs and create a web-shop so they are available to be purchased.

Like many businesses in the UK it’s a worrying time, our sales have understandably slowed down considerably 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 - ‘It’s the Wild Thang Way!’

Those shortlisted T-shirts that will let those amazing NHS heroes know they will never walk alone are now available to purchase.”
