Exclusive fashion collection launched to raise funds for those affected by Covid-19

In collaboration with illustrator Vicky Hughes, Covid Aid has launched a collection of clothing and art prints to raise funds for those affected by Covid-19.

The designs are on themes which bring hope to those affected by long Covid, grief and bereavement, trauma, and financial hardship, such as ‘Stronger Together’, ‘Be Kind to Yourself’ and ‘Pacing, Not Racing’.

You can find the collection in our Teemill store and at: covidaid.teemill.com/collection/vicky-hughes-x-covid-aid/

Vicky said: “My story with Covid-19 is far from unique, which is why I wanted to be a part of this project and help raise awareness and funds for those who continue to be affected by long covid and the echoes of the pandemic. I hope there is a design for everybody here and that they give a smile or help someone feel seen. I can’t wait to wear them myself!”

Michael MacLennan, Founder and Chief Executive of Covid Aid, said: “We are delighted to have collaborated with an illustrator of Vicky’s talents, and loved her approach of working with the Covid Aid Support Community to source ideas for the designs.

“Currently more than two million people in the UK are living with Long Covid, with families and friends of the 200,000 people whose lives have been lost to Covid-19 in the UK dealing with grief and bereavement. The proceeds from this collection will help us to provide more support as well as a voice for those affected.”
