Attention Manchester kids: help redesign the iconic I Love MCR® t-shirt to reflect your local community

I Love MCR® is looking for schools to help redesign the iconic I Love MCR® t-shirt to represent the different boroughs of Greater Manchester.

We want children from all over Greater Manchester to redesign the unisex t-shirt with a design that reflects their local community.

We will then choose a winner from each of the ten boroughs and the winning designs will be sold as limited editions at our stall in the city centre on Manchester Day.

100% of the proceeds from sales of each t-shirt will be donated to the We Love MCR Charity which works tirelessly to improve the lives and life chances of the people of Manchester.

Children can either design the t-shirts by themselves or they can be part of a schools entry. All we ask is that the design reflects their local community and the things you love about living in Manchester.

We have created a template which children can use to create their designs. You then need to post or email your entry to us by 14th June.

We’ll be announcing the winners on 21st June, ready for the t-shirts to be printed and sold on Manchester Day on 23rd June.

To enter…

  1. Each child or school to submit their entry to I Love MCR® by post or email by 3pm on 14 June 2019. Please download the template for the t-shirt here.
  2. Please ensure each entry also includes the contact details of a parent, guardian or teacher.
  3. Submit entries with name and age to: [email protected] or post to I Love Manchester, 426-428 Royal Exchange, St Ann’s Square, Manchester, M2 7EP.

The winners of the competition will then be chosen and contacted before 22 June 2019, and their t-shirt design will then be produced to sell for charity on the new organic clothing shop.

If you know a child or school that you think might like to enter, please contact us for more details.
