THE winning design on a new fundraising t-shirt for a popular stately home has been announced. 

 

The design was created by Rawmarsh artist Zoe Rowbotom, 33,  who was inspired by Wentworth Woodhouse while she was a student at Norton College. 

 

Zoe created the logo to follow the shape of the East Front of the house but her design sat forgotten in the attic for more than a decade before she entred it into a competition tun by the Preservation Trust.  

 

Her design was chosen to be printed on t-shirts which will help generate income for the home. 

 

 

"It’s brilliant to see my design used as I’d once dreamed it would,” said Zoe, a business analyst at Irwin Mitchell in Sheffield.

 

“It looks exactly how I’d imagined 13 years ago. I feel so proud that thousands of supporters will be wearing it.”

 

 

A batch of 5,000 t-shirts are now on sale at a pop-up shop in the mansion's gardens and on the Wentworth Woodhouse website.
