Big thank you to everyone who has made sure those NHS heroes know They’ll Never Walk Alone by purchasing a t-shirt over the past few weeks.
Just so you know the impact you have been making by purchasing a t-shirt we have put together an info graphic, which was designed by our very talented studio.
We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback with lots of people posting photo’s which really has made us feel incredibly proud as a team, and really makes us feel that our efforts to make a difference are worthwhile. Sharing our message across social media was the real aim and that has been achieved with tens of thousands of social media interactions.
As you know our first order to be dispatched was a very special delivery to 100-year-old Captain Tom Moore as a birthday treat, what an incredible hero that has captured the nation’s hearts with his fundraising for the NHS.
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.
But the highlight for the week was from Ellie Orton, CEO of NHS Charities Together who commented “Well done for all the support you are giving to NHS charities this is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing with us, we really appreciate it. Thank you so much for your support to NHSCT and our members. I love the videos and selfies they are great.”
We have had orders from across the UK and Internationally so we’re happy to report we have sold over 370 t-shirt’s over the past few weeks.
Don’t forget 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!’.
Together we can all make a difference T-shirts still available over on the Wild Thang Shop
