Illustrator and pop artist Sir Peter Blake has teamed up with Comic Relief to create a range of specially designed re-usable face coverings exclusively available in store and online at TK Maxx, with all profits donated to Comic Relief to provide vital support for people affected by the Covid 19 pandemic.
Sir Peter’s designs reflect his love of popular culture and pop art, using striking geometric patterns and vivid colours, all which are seen in his three designs for Comic Relief. With the words ‘Hope’ and ‘Love’ boldly printed on the face coverings, his designs are reflective of the sense of community and togetherness many have felt across the UK over recent months. Each limited-edition pack contains three face coverings and is available for £9.99 both in store and online at TKMaxx.com and Comicrelief.com. All profit will be donated to Comic Relief, which means that at least £4 from each pack will be going to help children and families in crisis and reliant on food banks, isolated older people, women and children at risk of domestic abuse, people struggling with their mental health and those living in poverty or without stable housing.
Ruth Davison, Chief Executive, at Comic Relief said: “As face coverings become part of our ‘new normal’ everyday life, it is fantastic that profits from these colourful, artistic designs will help vulnerable people. I want to thank Sir Peter Blake and TK Maxx for their wonderful support of Comic Relief as we fund essential projects helping people living in poverty throughout the pandemic.”
Deborah Dolce, Senior Vice President, Group Brand and Marketing Director at TK Maxx added: “TK Maxx has always been passionate about supporting local charities in the communities in which we live and operate, so we are proud to support our long standing friends at Comic Relief to help vulnerable groups impacted by Covid 19. We have been very encouraged by the good spirited respect and camaraderie displayed by our lovely customers and staff in recent months. It has been brilliant to see such kindness and community spirit and Sir Peter’s iconic designs reflect this perfectly.”
