Royal Blood and Wolf Alice design t-shirts for cancer charity

By | Published on Tuesday 8 August 2017

Cancer charity Trekstock has launched a new collection of t-shirts designed by musicians which are being sold in aid of its work with young adults facing cancer.

It’s part of a venture called the Yellow Bird Project, which has recently been relaunched, and the new t-shirts have been designed by the likes of Royal Blood, Wolf Alice, Everything Everything and Oh Sees. They are retailing for £22 with all proceeds going to the charity.

Says Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell of her design: “I tried to draw a werewolf but he came out looking all sad and vulnerable. I quite like the idea of things that are supposed to be menacing and scary showing their human, sensitive side – much like the Beast in ‘Beauty And The Beast’ – so here is the loneliest werewolf on earth”.

On the project, Trekstock founder Sophie Epstone adds “We are incredibly grateful that our Yellow Bird Project has garnered support from some of the very best artists in the world. Every individual design makes an invaluable difference to not only helping fund our vital services but generating much needed awareness for Trekstock and the young adults with cancer that we support”.
