The agency team and Manduo have collaborated on the project to release 50 limited edition jumpers in a bid to raise funds for the charity, which was set up to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education and empowerment.
Mimicking the traditional Christmas jumper style, Mancsy’s design incorporates a Hacienda tree and features the artist’s trademark worker bee in honour of the great city.
Through the fundraising, Manc Frank is hoping to raise enough money to send two young people to Education for the Children’s School of Hope.
This marks the second Christmas that Manc Frank has supported Education for the Children, after the agency received national acclaim last year for auctioning their tattoo-loving GM’s skin, with the winning bidder, Tour Media, choosing the design.
Mancsy said: “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.
“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.”
Graeme Anthony, GM at Manc Frank, commented: “The auction was a lot of fun but I wanted to do something this year with a lot less personal pain to myself and can’t thank Mancsy enough for his involvement.
“The design is Mancsy at his best – 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.”
- With Christmas Jumper Day just around the corner (Friday 16 December), the Manc-Mas Jumper is available to purchase via #SOLDTOME on @manc_fr4nk (Instagram) and is priced at £25, with all proceeds going to Education for the Children. Customers can also buy the jumpers from Manc Frank’s office, which is based within the city centre at 113-115 Portland Street. Alternatively, arrangements can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
