The ten students, who learn at the University of Derby's St Helena campus on Sheffield Road, created the t-shirts, which feature the words 'Your Life Matters' on a compass to represent that people can come out of difficult situations even when they feel lost.

The students are now selling the t-shirts, with all profits going to Chesterfield Samaritans. For more information, visit this Facebook page.
