David and Victoria Beckham have turned fundraising into a family affair to design the official T-shirts for Sport Relief 2010.

The footballer and his pop star-turned-fashion designer wife got their three boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz to lend a hand with the project, with the finished results revealed as the charity event was launched today (January 20).

David produced a self-portrait showing his soccer skills for one design, while the boys used spray cans and a blank canvas for the family collaboration.

Each T-shirt features "The Beckhams for Sport Relief" logo, a combination of the footprints of each family member.

The England star said: "Our family had a great time designing the T-shirt range and we hope it will raise much needed funds for many important causes. The most important thing is that the money raised will make a genuine difference to people's lives."

This year's events include an attempt by Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton to become the first woman to kayak along the Amazon river.

Rugby ace Lawrence Dallaglio will cycle around the Six Nations and One Show presenter Christine Bleakley will take on a water skiing challenge across the English Channel.

Sport Relief will take place from March 19 to 21 and will raise money for charity schemes in the UK as well as developing countries.

It will include a night of entertainment on the BBC, including a new sketch from Gavin And Stacey star James Corden and special editions of Masterchef, Top Gear and A Question Of Sport.
