We have partnered with a leading online sustainable womenswear brand for the launch of a new charity t-shirt.

Baukjen, a brand designed by women, for women, has released the Lilou charity T-shirt with us in time for International Women’s Day on 8 March 2020. The T-shirt bears the slogan ‘Solidarity’, a message that reflects our work here at Woman’s Trust; to support and empower women.

Commenting on the partnership Woman’s Trust CEO, Heidi Riedel, said: “We were thrilled when Baukjen approached us about being their charity partner for the Lilou Tee – they have a history of supporting organisations that help vulnerable women and children.

“Money raised from sales of the Lilou Tee will go into helping us deliver more free counselling and therapy for women who have experienced domestic abuse. We are grateful to Baukjen for their support.”

Domestic abuse is the single biggest cause of depression in UK women and has links to substance abuse, self-harm, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and other mental health concerns. At Woman’s Trust we have supported more than 15,000 women from across London to address mental health and emotional wellbeing needs caused by abuse. Through our free and tailored counselling, group therapy, and self-development workshops we have provided the equivalent of over £6m in free mental health support; empowering women to rebuild their lives after abusive relationships.

“International Women’s Day is always momentous. It allows us to unite with our customers and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the globe.” says Founder & Creative Director Baukjen De Swaan Arons.

Baukjen continues, “It’s fantastic for us to have the opportunity to partner with such a worthwhile charity like Woman’s Trust, creating positive change for women during their times of need. Our T-shirt is designed to empower.”

Launching as part of the Baukjen SS20 collection, 50% of net proceeds from the sales of the charity tee will be donated to us at Woman’s Trust.

The Lilou T-Shirt, available to buy online via the Baukjen website, comes in sizes UK 6–16 and is priced at £39.
