PARTS supplier Wemoto is hoping to bolster NHS Charities Together as it launches its newest fundraising t-shirt.
Profits from the company’s new ‘The Motorcyclist’ tee will help boost funding to the health service as the country battles through the Covid-19 pandemic.
For the past five years, Wemoto has designed and sold Festival of Jurby t-shirts and given all profits to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club, which provides a helicopter ambulance response service on practice and race days for riders during the Manx Grand Prix as well as supports injured riders and their families.
But with the Festival suspended indefinitely late last summer due to uncertainties with insurance and in light of the current pandemic, the firm decided to switch focus for 2020.
And with racing still fighting to return, Wemoto designed its new one-off fundraising shirt to help support NHS Charities Together, formerly known as the Association of NHS Charities.
“It’s a charity which is close to all our hearts and which, now more than ever, needs as much support as it can get,” said a Wemoto spokesperson.
“NHS Charities Together is a collective which represents the 250 UK NHS charities. Every day it donates £1million to the NHS.
“The money will be used to help support our fantastic NHS nurses and to provide vital care to Covid-19 patients at a level that is above and beyond what the NHS can provide on its own.
“Together we can help the NHS continue to provide a fantastic service to Covid-19 victims.”
