British pottery maker Emma Bridgewater has created two limited edition aprons
for Sport Relief 2014. One of the designs will be presented each night to the
winner of ‘The Great Sport Relief Bake Off’ and both designs are available to
buy exclusively from Sport Relief official partners, brands-for-less homeware
retailer HomeSense, TK
Maxx stores, and throughout the UK from January 13th

There’s been a resurgence in home
baking across the nation and the apron is a great opportunity to be part of the
baking movement whilst supporting a great cause.
Bridgewater says: “After the success of our Emma Bridgewater
range for Red Nose Day we were delighted to be asked to create something for
Sport Relief 2014. Our two new aprons feature our signature black and white
hand drawn design, encouraging everyone to be a sport and get involved. Whether
it’s sport or baking it’s the taking part that counts – but this way everyone
gets to take home a trophy.
The team at Emma
Bridgewater are very passionate about Comic Relief and I know they are already
looking at this year’s Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games too… I personally quite
fancy a swimming challenge.”
A spokesperson for HomeSense and
TK Maxx added: “We are delighted to be
working with Sport Relief and Emma Bridgewater again and supporting the good
work that Comic Relief does both across the world and in the local communities
where we have customers and stores.”
Since 2002, Sport Relief has raised over
£195million. As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings
the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. The money raised from the apron will be used
to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged
people –both on your doorstep in the UK and around the world. So join in the
fun and games and be sure to grab a limited edition Emma Bridgewater apron
before they’re all scone!
