Have you seen the new Rankin T-shirts For Comic Relief yet? TK Maxx has partnered with renowned UK fashion and portrait photographer, Rankin, to create the 2017 Red Nose Day T-shirt range for Comic Relief. For this year’s collection, Rankin has photographed nine loveable animals and created each T-shirt and coordinating pyjama set, which will be available exclusively in TK Maxx stores and tkmaxx.com (from 1st February 2017).
Each limited edition design features a different character, from Coco the adorable Kitten to Albert the cool bulldog and Charlie the charming horse which are available across women’s, men’s and kids sizes. Money raised from the sale of T-shirts, at least £5.00 from women’s and men’s and £2.50 from kids is donated to Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives across Africa and here in the UK. T-shirts have been manufactured in Africa and are made with Fairtrade cotton sourced from certified co-operatives in Uganda meaning a fairer price for the farmers.
In addition to the T-shirt range, Rankin’s exclusive images will feature on a selection of homeware products that will also be available to purchase instore and online at tkmaxx.com. These include aprons for adults and children, tea towels, a colouring in notebook and also a recycled leather notebook.

Comedian Jack Whitehall and actress Maisie Williams have joined forces to front the 2017 campaign also shot by Rankin. A whole host of celebrities including Joanna Lumley, Heidi Klum, Will Poulter, Caroline Flack, Alesha Dixon and Blake Harrison have also pledged their support to the campaign by wearing one of the exclusive T-shirts and making their laugh matter by sharing their favourite joke in support of Red Nose Day.
“I designed this range especially for Comic Relief with my love for animals in mind. I wanted to be able to put a fun and creative spin on classic images for this specific campaign to put a smile on people’s faces for Red Nose Day and encourage everyone to make their laugh matter.”
A TJX Europe spokesperson, said:
“We are thrilled to have Rankin support us in our T-shirt campaign for Comic Relief this year. We have no doubt that his fantastic range will appeal to all families across the UK, who without their generosity, we wouldn’t be able to raise life changing funds for Red Nose Day.”
Emma Freud, Director of Red Nose Day, added:
“We are incredibly excited to be working with TK Maxx and Rankin again this year. The money raised from each t-shirt will make a real difference to the lives of people living in poverty across Africa and the UK. We’re very much in love with the designs that Rankin has produced and plan on deifying him quite soon. We love the look of our animals on the chests of Jack Whitehall and Maisie Williams – the modelling dream team. Please join us by making your laugh matter this year.”
