Penguino’s Christmas ‘T-Shirt’ Day

Thursday 8th December

Three years ago Penguino became famous overnight when he featured on our t-shirt worn by Margaret Keenan, the first person to receive the Covid-19 vaccine

To mark the anniversary of the vaccine, we are encouraging everyone to wear their Christmas Penguino T Shirts!

You can show your support by wearing one of our Penguino Christmas T-Shirts which are available to buy in our online shop! Special X-mas offer two t-shirts for £16 available now!
