People of all ages have been having a great time following the GoGoGorillas! trail through Norwich this summer – and now they can buy the T-shirts too.
Husband and wife team Ben and Kate Lee have created two designs to celebrate the trail of artistic apes which is raising funds for children’s charity Break and the Born Free Foundation.
The T-shirts are a collaboration between the couple’s Whittington-based business BKfrank and Break.
Each design features profile views of 27 of the 54 gorillas.
The T-shirts are made to order and people can have the designs printed on a range of colours.
Mrs Lee said: “We have known about Break for ages and enjoyed seeing how the gorillas were being painted.
“We have been following GoGoGorillas! on Twitter and we just wanted to get involved.
“All the profit from the T-shirts is being given to Break.”
She said they have already had lots of interest in the T-shirts, with both designs being equally popular.
She added that lots of people were buying both designs so that they have the full set of the gorillas.
Michael Rooney, from Break, said: “Break is delighted with the GoGoGorillas! T-shirts. There has been such wonderful support for the project which will raise vital funds for our work with children, young people and their families.
“We would like to thank BKfrank for this lovely celebration of our GoGoGorillas! We know that people will love them.”
