HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust will benefit from sales of an eye-catching new T-shirt design, launched to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Designer English Threads will donate £3 from each T-shirt sold to the trust and hopes to raise £5,000.
The design combines the Union Jack flag with the red ribbon emblem which is the global symbol of support for people living with HIV.
Stephen Shotton, founder and designer at English Threads wanted to create a quintessentially English fashion statement while capturing the jubilee spirit.
Sonya Trivedy, head of fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: "We just love this T-shirt, and we are so grateful to English Threads for choosing us to benefit from their wonderful design. It's the perfect accessory not just for the jubilee celebrations, but for any one of the Great British events taking place this summer, including our own Walk for Life. With the money raised going to support people living with HIV, we hope that people will like it as much as we do and buy a T-shirt to show their solidarity with the cause."
The T-shirts cost £19.99, are manufactured from 100% cotton and available in a range of sizes for men and women. They can be purchased at http://www.englishthreads.com.
