Teen’s clothing empire dream to help the homeless

He will use the profits to get homeless people a warm meal

An 18-year-old is launching his own clothing brand and using the profits to go out onto the streets in Lincoln and help homeless people.

Regan Ashley Barnes has designed logos to go on t-shirts, hats, hoodies, phone cases, and even cushions cases.

He told The Lincolnite that it was inspired by his grandad who recently passed away. Regan hopes that this “will make him proud”.

Regan Barnes wants to make a difference.

“With the money we make I will be going to the city centre with a couple of friends,” said Regan, who has worked on construction sites since he left Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School.

“We will get some food from the local shops and give them a warm meal. I was never the smartest kid at school but over the past couple of years I’ve been trying to make something of myself.

“My hopes are to start to help those in our city and then move onto helping as many homeless people as possible – not just physically but emotionally as well.”

All of the products can be found on the Spreadshirt website here.
