As a company we have followed all the government guidelines to promote best practice for anything related to covid-19 and the corona virus so we can help protect the most vulnerable, it’s been one of the toughest times in our 24 year history.
We wanted to do more and make a difference which started by creating social distancing t-shirts as our last job for our amazing team, this was to raise awareness of social distancing before some of the team started to work remotely from home. The feedback from our friends and family was awesome and they loved the design, but still we wanted to do more.
Recently we have delivered a large consignment of clothing - 28 large bags of t-shirts, hoodies and bottoms to be precise, over to Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, this was after hearing they were in desperate need of clothing for frontline staff working tirelessly for the patients with covid-19, 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 guys at Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
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 and 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 Charity No 1186569 or send a t-shirt to the NHS frontline staff, because we knew 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, they will be available to purchase soon, we will share the news via our social media channels when they go live!
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 as 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!’
For now, stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.
