T-shirts featuring the iconic Skipton scenes camper van have gone on sale in aid of Parkinson’s UK.

Landlord Andrew Mear hopes to add to the £2700 already raised for the charity through sales of his specially created Skipton calendar last Christmas with the T-shirts, which cost £20 each. £10 will be donated to Parkinson’s UK for each one sold.

Said Andrew, whose property portfolio includes Skipton’s medieval High Corn Mill and High Street House:
“Skipton people have really taken the camper van to their hearts. It showcases a number of well-known local landmarks so we thought by creating T-shirts featuring the van, they could show their support for the town and raise vital money for a good cause at the same time. It has been a particularly tough year for charities including Parkinson’s UK, which is dedicated to improving life for everyone affected by the condition.”

The T-shirts, in either blue or white, are on sale at The Home Company at High Corn Mill and E-Shoes on the High Street. A full range of sizes, from extra-small to extra-large, is available.

Dating back to the 12th Century, High Corn Mill, has adapted through the years to provide Skipton residents and businesses with a hub of history and lifestyle choices. With an array of retail outlets and office units, its peaceful, convenient location in the heart of the town has always had sustainability at its core.
