Banana Chat – meet Angie and Kevin Bruns

This week’s Banana Chat is with our inspirational people of the week Kevin and Angie Bruns who run their company Broken Heart Tees making customised clothing and raising money for charity through their sales!

Hello, we’re Kevin and Angie. We have been married for 8 years and together we run our company Broken Heart Tees. We make customised clothing and raise money for charity through our sales! We create brand new designs from scratch and make tees, hoodies, vests, various bags, trainers and shoes. We pride ourselves on being able to bring people’s design ideas to life and make them something completely personal.

I (Angie) am also a full time nurse and have been in nursing for 18 years which I absolutely adore. Kevin is 52 years old and spends time staying as healthy as possible with his Cystic Fibrosis.

So we have answered the banana questions as a joint effort, most answers are from me (Angie) but Kevin has chirped in every now and then!
