pudseyThe Children in Need figurehead is a poorly bear, known to all as Pudsey. A near iconic symbol of one the most famous children’s charities, Pudsey Bear graces the annual fund-raising tee in many different guises, but never as snazzy as this year’s incarnation by designer Giles Deacon.

Well known for his t-shirt designs, Deacon has come up with some amazing t-shirts here. Metallic and glitzy, more than slightly abstract, these are sure to appeal to the fashion concious as well as the faithful followers.

To buy your tee, go to the Children in Need website, this is one funky charity tee you’ll be happy to wear!

Apart from the fact that the Paul Smith for Gary Barlow “Children in Need Rocks!” t-shirt is for a great cause and looks fab, what I really appreciate is that the website gives a breakdown of the amount which goes to the charity. I wish this happened more often, as I’m a bit of an old cynic and think that if you slap the word ‘charity’ on your product, unless you are provided with a percentage of how much of the retail price goes to charity, you could be paying a premium and not really be helping the little bunnies/children/ dragons at all (and you gotta help the dragons)

For every t-shirt costing £45, over half the price of the tee (a whopping £25) will go directly to fund the causes supported by Children in Need. A great reason to buy a great t-shirt and support kids in the UK and around the world. Rocking!

This year BBC Children in Need have got together a host of famous fashion designers to come up with an amazing selection of t-shirt designs to help fund-raise. Distributed by Debenhams, the t-shirts have been designed by names such as John Rocha, Henry Holland, Frost French and Matthew Williamson amongst others. This one is by Roksanda Ilincic. These are great kids tees, bright and fun and all with a bit of a Pudsey theme, a great way to raise a bit of extra money for one of Britain’s best loved charities. They are available instore now, so a great way to gear up for the big day.
