Celebrating Leicester’s Premier League Win
Posted on May 6, 2016
Over the last few weeks our Leicestershire homes have been backing the blues of Leicester City Football Club in their efforts to become Premier League Champions. It’s been an exciting few weeks where both staff and residents have been watching games together and dressing up in blue to show their support. One resident at Holmes House, John ‘Ian’ King, aged 78, played centre half for Leicester in 1963 and has been following Leicester’s progress very closely, talking to others in the home about his history in the team. Ian was very definite that Leicester would do well this season and he’s over the moon that they’ve officially won the title. You can see him below, sporting his original kit from the 60s. Vicki Shaw, our Director of Quality matters, who visited the home this week, said: ‘It’s been wonderful to see everyone come together for the football. Ian will be watching Leicester’s final game on Sunday with his family and the rest of Homes House will be celebrating with decorated cakes and having a kick around whilst listening to the match.’ The celebrations have been continuing at Stoneygate Oaklands as well, where staff and residents have made their own homemade banner to support the Foxes. And not forgetting our team at Head Office, who are continuing to wear blue in celebration. We’re looking forward to watching Leicester’s two remaining games in the season and many are looking forward to seeing the awarding of the cup this weekend.
