Celebrities including Jenna Coleman and Emily Atack have donned T-shirts designed by Charlie Mackesy to raise money for Comic Relief. 

Emily, Jenna, Olivia Colman, Felicity Jones and Jermaine Jenas have all donned the tops, which will be available at TKMaxx.com, in order to raise vital funds for the charity. 

The designs are from British illustrator Charlie, whose drawings and hopeful captions have become fan favourites, from his book The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse. 

The image sees Mole with an added red nose as the top reads: ‘“What do you want to be when you grow up?” “Kind,” said the boy/girl.’

Charlie said of the collaboration: ‘The pandemic is causing so much pain and worry for many, but it moves and amazes me that people can still find the strength and kindness to look after each other; neighbours, strangers, family and friends.

‘It has been a heart-breaking and tumultuous time that I think we’d like to forget, but I hope we can remember the small acts of kindness that have brought us much hope.

‘Many people need us right now, so I hope the Red Nose Day t-shirt helps to raise the funds to make a difference.’

The limited edition T-shirt will be available at tkmaxx.com for £14.99, with at least £7 of each purchase being donated to Red Nose Day. 

The funds raised for Red Nose Day will help the charity support vulnerable people in the UK and around the world, and help tackle hunger, homelessness, abuse and mental health stigma.

Comic Relief’s chief executive Ruth Davison added: ‘As the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect many vulnerable communities in the UK and around the world, it’s never felt more important to make a real difference and care for each other.

‘It’s wonderful to see this poignant illustration by Charlie Mackesy feature in the Red Nose Day t-shirts range helping to remind us how impactful kindness can be particularly during the toughest of times, as well as raising vital funds for those who need it most.

‘I’d like to say a huge thank you to TK Maxx for their valuable support and to Charlie for his beautiful drawings.’

Red Nose Day 2021 takes place on March 19.
