We’re #BackingTheBlues Are You?!

29th April 2016

Today is the day Leicestershire turns blue!! You may have seen my blog a couple of weeks ago about the #BackingTheBlues campaign run by local paper The Leicester Mercury and BBC Radio Leicester, well it’s finally here!! With Leicester FC just one win away from winning the Premier League, the whole of Leicestershire have banded together to show their support for the boys in blue. From wear-your-kit to work days to blue hair to lighting up the city’s buildings blue, everyone’s gone a bit blue crazy!!


As a proud Leicestershire company, we of course wanted to get involved to show our support. As well as turning all our social media blue for the day by only posting blue images, we have made some beautiful bunting in our teams colours which we’ve streamed all around Cotes Mill. After all, what’s a party without a bit of bunting?!…and we have every faith we’ll be partying on Sunday afternoon!


And it’s not just at our Leicestershire showrooms, we wanted to spread the word at our London showroom too! It’s even got novice baker Ben into our little kitchen to whip up some support in the form of these amazing blueberry muffins…


Back up in Leicestershire our sister company, Shreddies, have been making use of their amazing sewing skills by stitching together this super cute fox, a little nod to the team’s nickname, complete with his very own mini LCFC scarf!


And who knows, this Sunday may confirm the fate of ex-player and now BBC Sports poster boy, Gary Lineker, who vowed back in December that if Leicester won the league he’d do the first episode of next season’s Match of the Day just in his pants. Fingers crossed we’ll be seeing him in this pair of custom made Shreddies very soon!!!
