Suzuki launches winning design t-shirt in aid of the Marcus Rutherford FoundationAug 06, 2014
Suzuki GB PLC recently gave fans the chance to design a t-shirt in which the winning design would be produced and included as part of Suzuki’s latest merchandise collection.
Suzuki is delighted to announce that out of more than 300 design entries the competition winner is David Greenman from The Isle of Wight. He was awarded an OGIO trolley bag filled with Suzuki merchandise, worth £500.
The Driving Force behind the competition was for Suzuki to be able to support a worthy and very important charity, The Marcus Rutherford Foundation / Young Adult Cancer Trust. Suzuki will donate 10 per cent of the money raised from the t-shirt sales to the cause.
This is the second time that Suzuki has run a charity donation programme for its merchandise; in 2012 a t-Shirt and hoodie were designed and manufactured in aid of iconic Motorcycle World champion Barry Sheene with donations going to The Clic Sargent Cancer foundation, Barry Sheene’s chosen charity.
The Marcus Rutherford Foundation exists to research the causes of cancer in young adults and provide those undergoing treatments at University College London Hospital and other institutions with advice and support, access to technology, internet, DVDs and other facilities that wouldn’t otherwise be available. Also, the charitable organisation that Marcus bravely founded and part-funded before his passing in 2012 has so far spent tens of thousands of pounds handing £100 grants, laptop computers and other equipment to hundreds of young adult cancer patients in need.
Celebrities such as Jodie Kidd penned their own design ideas to support the charity which were all displayed at Motorcycle Live.
The winning t-shirt is on sale now and available in sizes S-XXL, priced at £28.00 and can be purchased at any Suzuki dealer and also via the Suzuki website www.suzuki.co.uk/cars and official ebay store.
