MK Dons has thrown its support behind this year’s Red Nose Day.
Dons players Shaun Williams and Ian McLoughlin paid a visit to thecentre:mk’s TK Maxx to pick up their exclusive Stella McCartney-designed T-shirts in the name of Comic Relief.
TK Maxx has supported Red Nose Day since 2005, raising £9.7 million for Comic Relief, and their biggest fundraising tool is the stylish designer T-shirts sold in store.
The limited edition collection feature iconic images of the Beatles, Tommy Cooper, Marilyn Monroe and Kate Moss. All the t-shirts are made from 100 per cent fair trade certified and organic cotton.
Williams and McLoughlin picked out their favourite t-shirts and we glad to be helping the Comic Relief efforts.
Dons midfielder-turned-defender Williams said: “Comic Relief is an iconic fundraising event and it is one that a lot of people feel very strongly about.
“It’s important to remember that behind all the laughter and enjoyment that comes with the Comic Relief programme, there is a lot of heartache and sorrow and by raising money for the cause you can help people who are suffering in the UK and overseas.”
McLoughlin added: “The T-shirts are a quirky, stylish way to show your support and to help raise some much-needed funds for Comic Relief.”
The TK Maxx, their customers and employers, raised an incredible £3 million for Comic Relief last year, and are aiming to raise the bar even higher.
And the staff in Milton Keynes TK Maxx are going one step further to increase funds for Comic Relief with raffles in store, a fancy dress weekend in store with face painting and an auction – including a signed MK Dons t-shirt.
Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK which strives to create a just world free from poverty – and they work 365 days a year to help that vision become a reality.
Comic Relief spends the money raised through Red Nose Day campaigns to help change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa.
