This Christmas, Lifeshare is teaming up with a range of Greater Manchester artists to create a collection of t-shirts that will support the homeless across Manchester and Salford – as displayed by Northern icon Maxine Peake and The Orielles’ Esmé Dee Hand Halford. The limited-edition range comes as the charity has seen a spike in homelessness cases across Greater Manchester due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On sale exclusively at, the t-shirts feature art from Manchester artists Mikesian Studio, Caroline Dowsett, Guy Mckinley, Habitats, Han Valentine, DR.ME and Paul Hemmingfield. The site offers a limited time offer to pre-order your favourite shirts from Monday 16 November to Tuesday 1 December, with the shirts arriving in time for Christmas.

All profits will be donated directly to the charity, who focus on supporting the needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Salford and Manchester by offering assistance in obtaining emergency accommodation. So, if you’re a little stuck for ideas for presents this year, why not give the gift of kindness and help out a charity that is really trying to make a difference (and also dishing out some pretty cool tees as well).
