Popular urban artist Mancsy has teamed up with local PR agency Manc Frank to create a special Manchester jumper for Christmas Jumper Day.
Only 50 of the limited edition jumpers, which feature a Hacienda tree and the artist’s trademark worker bee, have been made. All proceeds from sales go to Education for the Children, a charity set up to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala.
“Manchester is absolutely magical at Christmas and I’ve tried to integrate a design that captures that and infuses it with the symbols that are synonymous with this city and my work,” said Mancsy.
“Being the season of goodwill, I hope Manchester will dig deep to support the initiative and wear the jumper with pride whilst safely enjoying the city’s festivities.”
Manc Frank is hoping to raise enough money to send two youngsters to Education for the Children’s School of Hope, which educates 475 children and supports another 180 further education students.
“The design is Mancsy at his best,” said Graeme Anthony of Manc Frank. “We’re huge fans of his work and we couldn’t think of anyone better to create the very first Manchester-themed Christmas jumper. They’re the perfect gift for Mancunians and strictly limited edition with only 50 made, so grab a piece of Manchester history whilst you can and raise some funds for a worthy cause in the process.”
Remember Christmas jumpers aren’t just for Christmas Jumper Day. So why not buy one and wear it all the way up to Christmas Day.
The Manchester Christmas jumper is priced £25 and available via #SOLDTOME on @manc_fr4nk instagram or from the Manc Frank office at 113-115 Portland Street.
