Garment Printing is helping Ed Jones raise funds for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research using t-shirts designed by Leslie Nemes of design company, Monographics. With charity discounts and donations from Garment Printing, Jones is expecting to add to the total £23,000 raised since 2006.

I definitely intend to have t-shirts printed in the future, and of course will be using Garment Printing with designs by Leslie Nemes.

Garment Printing is known for its involvement in charities, especially since launching its price beat promise for charities in August 2013.

One happy customer taking advantage of this opportunity is Ed Jones, who was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in March 2006. Jones initiated the MK Leukaemia Concerts for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. The concerts take place annually, and this year for the first time, Jones decided to sell t-shirts in order to increase donations.

Celebrity musician, Leslie Nemes, former bassist of 80s pop band Haircut 100, now runs his own t-shirt design company, Monographics, and was keen to work with Jones on the designs. Garment Printing successfully brought four of Monographic’s amazing designs to life on t-shirts. For best quality and to ensure brilliance of colours, the direct-to-garment technique has been employed.

"From the initial telephone conversation, the Garment Printing staff patiently guided this novice charity t-shirt seller through the order process expertly,” explained Jones.

“What initially attracted me to their quote was the fact they offered a best-price guarantee, and a discount for a charity order in bulk. Since then, I’ve been completely satisfied by delivery, which has been highly organised and punctual. The 100% cotton t-shirts have proved very popular with the attendees of my Milton Keynes Concert in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research," continued Jones.

The concert takes place on 5th April at Shenley Leisure Centre, Milton Keynes and is headlined by 50s and 60s cover band, Breathless with support from rock band, Roadworn and pop band, The Enigmas.

To date, Jones has raised over £21,500 for leukaemia and lymphoma research through the Milton Keynes concerts. Last year’s concerts raised a landmark £4,300. Garment Printing wants to help Jones to make this year’s concert even more successful by donating £25 for every 50 t-shirts sold.

The successful cooperation with Garment Printing and Leslie Nemes opened new possibilities for Jones to support his cause:
