Mackenzie has created the t-shirts in partnership with Our Hospitals Charity to support staff and services at The James Cook University Hospital, Friarage Hospital and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s community health services.

The design is based on Mackenzie’s ‘Duffle Coat Child’ and the bespoke ‘People’s Medal’ pin badge he created for South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’m so happy to be supporting this fantastic cause so close to my heart,” said Mackenzie.

“Now, more than ever Our Hospitals Charity needs all the help it can get. So I hope as many people as possible pick up a t-shirt and wear it with pride.”

The 100% organic cotton t-shirt is available in white, grey and black. A children’s design is also available.

All tops are printed in the UK and every penny raised from sales will go to Our Hospitals Charity (formerly South Tees Hospitals Charity).

To get your hands on the limited edition t-shirt visit the Our Hospitals Charity online shop at https://our-hospitals-charity.myshopify.com

They are also available to buy from the charity hub at James Cook and the charity office at the Friarage.

“It’s been really exciting to work with Mackenzie on this project and the finished product looks amazing,” said Ben Murphy, head of Our Hospitals Charity.

“Stocks are limited so get yours before they all go!”
