Leading casual clothing brand, Weird Fish, has announced the winner of a new charity T-shirt design after teaming up with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
‘Eat, Sleep, Walk, Repeat’ imagined by Faith Smith, will be the latest addition to Weird Fish’s artist T-shirt Collection. The new charity T-shirt will be on sale before the end of the year for £20, with £5 from each T-shirt given to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, one of the UK’s oldest and most famous animal rescue centres.
At the start of the summer Weird Fish held a Facebook competition inviting applicants to send in their dog-inspired ideas along with a photo of their favourite four legged friend. After whittling down the applications, Weird Fish selected three finalists; ‘Bark to the Future’ from Lynn Middleton, ‘Games of Bones’ from Michael Mayne, and ‘Eat, Sleep, Walk, Repeat’ from Faith Smith.
The concepts were then brought to life by Weird Fish artist Richard Skipworth, with the winning sketch decided by Facebook likes. ‘Eat, Sleep, Walk, Repeat’ will now be made into a T-Shirt in aid of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, to be sold later this year online and at Weird Fish stores across the country.
John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, said: “Our latest T-shirt is a great example of Weird Fish’s commitment to creativity and sense of humour. It’s bold and quirky and has an added bonus of supporting a cause that’s very close to our hearts, with money from each T-shirt sale going directly to the charity.
“We’re delighted with our new partnership with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and have the utmost respect for the work they do in rescuing and re-homing dogs and cats.”
The winning T-shirt, ‘Eat, Sleep, Walk, Repeat,’ imagined by Faith Smith, will see her rescue dog Mani being brought to life. Faith will also receive a free copy of her T-shirt along with £200 to spend with Weird Fish.
Liz Tait, director of fundraising at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, commented: “We receive no Government funding, so the support of companies like Weird Fish makes an enormous difference to us. Weird Fish is known for its iconic, fun T-shirt collection – so we’re thrilled that one has been designed in honour of Battersea. We’re a nation of animal lovers and this is the ideal shirt to wear when taking your dog out for a walk.”
Weird Fish clothing is available to buy nationally from Weird Fish retail stores and online. There are 14 branded stores and stockists include Debenhams, Cotswold Outdoor and Blacks Leisure.
