Soggy bottom clothing featured in leading trade show

A charity’s cheeky clothing range for adults and children will be featuring at one of the leading gift and home trade shows.

Papworth Trust will be exhibiting its fun range of pun-based clothing at the Autumn Fair at Birmingham’s NEC in September.

The high quality product – complete with witty culinary, gardening and baby slogans – have been a big hit since launching last year, catching the eye of a number of celebrity chefs including James Martin and Tom Kerridge.

Annette Angell, fundraising manager at Papworth Trust, said: “We wanted to create a quirky and different way to fundraise – where donating wasn’t just about giving money.

“Instead you would be getting something you really loved, safe in the knowledge that all proceeds go to supporting disabled people in the UK.

“Our puntastic range makes for the perfect gift for the adult or child in your life and we can’t wait to showcase our range at an event as prestigious as the Autumn Fair.”

The Can Clothing range has already exhibited at the BBC Good Food Show and Gardener’s World Live where they won the backing of celebrities and the public alike – with cheeky cooking and gardening phrases like "I’m ganaching my buns" and a baby range which includes "Don’t mention my soggy bottom".

Beautifully packaged in reusable cans, proceeds from the sales of Can Clothing will be used to provide essential care and support to older and disabled people and their families.

With more than 1,400 exhibitors and an estimated 29,000 visitors from the UK and overseas, the Autumn Fair is the season’s number one gift and home trade event ahead of Christmas, St Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter.

Papworth Trust can be found at Stand SK73 during the show which runs between 6-9 September.
