Christian clothing brand raises thousands for NHS through 'stay home' t-shirt campaign

by Heather Preston

A Christian clothing company has produced a new line of t-shirts to help support the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic.

The t-shirts, produced by ethical brand Good Tee Co encourage people to observe social distancing measures as the country remains in lockdown. 

The words "stay home and support our NHS" are printed on each t-shirt and consumers are encouraged to post pictures of themselves wearing them on social media as a sign of solidarity and thanks to the work of health care professionals.

100 per cent of the t-shirt sales is being donated to the NHS.

Founder, Anna Brading told Premier that the crisis inspired her to use her small business for good.

"I thought the company could use this to raise a bit of money for the ICU's and the NHS which are struggling right now.

"I also noticed a big gap between the people being asked to stay home and wait for things to improve, and the people on the front line at the NHS who are doing these long shifts, giving their energy, time and skills. I thought it would it be a nice way for the people at home to do something and stand in solidarity. 

"It's just a way of showing our appreciation - a thank you to the NHS for what you're doing," she added.

Brading explained that a number of other local businesses have given their time for free to help them with the initiative, donating their graphic design and web development skills. She says it's a great way for people to unite and serve a common goal in a time of crisis.

"It's kind of just rethinking what your business was before, what you've got in your hands now and how you can use it really," she said.

To date the company has raised almost £2,500 for the National Health Service.

Brading has called for Christians to consider what small steps they can take to be a blessing to their local communities and to continue to pray for all those working on the frontline to save lives.
