A new clothing brand has launched today with a range raising money for Bristol city centre hospitals.

Milipili is an ethical tie-dye loungewear brand that endeavour to make a positive environmental and social impact. 

The 'Attitude to Gratitude' t-shirt, which features a rainbow design in support of the NHS, will be sold with 10 per cent of profits going to Above & Beyond.

Founder Gianina said: "This year I completed an internship with the Arts & Culture Programme at UHBW as part of my final year studies at the University of Bristol. During this time I had the opportunity to carry out a fascinating independent research project on the impact of live music on hospital staff, through which I learned about Above & Beyond's fantastic work.

"I discovered that the Above & Beyond Singers (choir) brings so much joy to UHBW staff; I also had the chance to attend a lovely Christmas carol concert at South Bristol Community Hospital, where Above & Beyond was raising funds for new and essential hospital technology. 

"Even though I am now no longer a student in Bristol, I recognise the importance of continuing to support and raising awareness for the impactful projects Above & Beyond do."

To celebrate the new partnership, there is a special welcome week offer for Above & Beyond supporters, who can buy one item and get a second with a 10 per cent discount with the code HELLOBRISTOL10.

The code is valid until noon on 20 October 2020.
