3 years ago
Branded Clothing, Merchandise & print specialist Wild Thang are reporting a surge in orders for its new range of hygiene and protection merchandise to support businesses coming out of lockdown, moving back gradually to full staffing and capacity, as they target a return to profitability.
Managing Director Andrew Dwerryhouse said
“Similar to many other businesses, the company has experienced an incredibly difficult time because of the disruption created by the virus, but we are now gradually seeing an increase in orders which is starting to gain momentum as lockdown eases.
We are now diversifying our products by offering a range of hygiene and protection merchandise to help minimise the spread of the virus. The range includes branded face masks and snoods which are proving popular with customers, especially in the education, sport, charity and retail sectors. All of the items can be personalised to a company or organisation’s brand specification. We know it’s been tough out there for every organisation and we are no exception, these are the times you need to look at different ways and come up with innovative ideas to ensure your business survives and grows.
We think this range of branded merchandise ticks lots of boxes as it is innovative, useful and essential. All of which can be fulfilled, mailed and distributed by Wild Thang so it goes direct to that colleague or customer and adheres to the social distancing guidelines.”
During the lockdown Wild Thang were working harder than ever on their NHS awareness campaign selling almost 500 limited edition t-shirts, designed to highlight the work of our NHS heroes during the coronavirus pandemic. Staff produced four t-shirt designs, each carrying a message of support and awareness for NHS staff.
Half the purchase price of all T-shirts bought went to good causes, and a number of t-shirts were sent to front line NHS workers. Andrew added: “We have been able to make donations and deliveries to Liverpool Women’s Hospital, Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, The Royal Liverpool Hospital, Alder Hey Hospital and Aintree Hospital. I’m so proud of our team who have found the time, energy and creativity to make a real difference during what has been a difficult period for everyone.
It has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster and the support from the public for our efforts has been amazing. We have seen thousands of shares and views across all of our social media channels. People have shared pictures of themselves wearing the t-shirts and we have loved that more than anything else.”
