Christmas ‘T-Shirt’ Day

Friday 10th December 2021

Last year our Penguino Christmas T-Shirt became famous overnight when worn by Margaret Keenan the first person to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. As NHS staff can’t wear Christmas jumpers on the wards, as its way too hot, once again we  are promoting Christmas ‘T-Shirt’ Day

You can show your support for your local hospitals by wearing our NEW Penguino Christmas T-Shirt which be available to pre-order from our online shop soon!
