Pre-order Emmanuel House’s first charity t-shirt

The design is being screen printed onto cotton t-shirts, which can be pre-ordered for £20 each from Print Social, an online pre-sale platform. 100% of the profit will go directly to Emmanuel House, and Print Social is kindly donating an additional 5% of the production cost of every t-shirt. Supporters can cover the cost of the t-shirt production, which is £10, by adding an optional donation at the checkout.

The next batch of t-shirts will be printed and dispatched after 20th January 2021.


Who designed the Emmanuel House t-shirt?

In November 2021, the Nottingham School of Art & Design asked its students to enter a design competition in collaboration with long-standing charity partner Emmanuel House. The brief asked students to design a ‘#TacklingHomelessness’ t-shirt with a sporting theme, which could be printed and sold as our first piece of commissioned clothing.

“We’re delighted to be collaborating with NTU students once again and riding high on the success of the third ‘NTU x Emmanuel House’ project that recently saw over 100 outerwear garments produced for the charity by the Level 1 NTU Fashion Design students.

Denis Tully, CEO at Emmanuel House

“By asking students to design a t-shirt to represent our charity and our theme of #TacklingHomelessness we’re not only celebrating the outstanding talent we have in the city, we’re raising funds for services that will directly benefit from the profits – the sale of the t-shirt will help fund our Access Team, which offers, amongst other things, clean clothes to people who are homeless.”

Denis Tully, CEO at Emmanuel House

“We are immensely proud of the partnership we have with Emmanuel House and this competition is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness and continue to support the charity. Sian is one of our second year students who really understands the importance of this campaign having worked on the outerwear project last year, and we hope her winning design will raise lots of money.”

Emma Prince, senior lecturer in Fashion Design at the Nottingham School of Art & Design

We’re delighted to announce that the judging panel, which included representatives from Nottingham Trent University and Emmanuel House, chose Fashion Design student Sian Slaney as the winning designer.

Denis added: “Sian’s outstanding design was chosen because of its simplicity, the innovative use of our brand colours and its striking lines to represent an athletics track.”
