Read All About It!

SuperJosh and family wearing the Gagnam Policeman t-shirts from Banana MoonBanana Moon’s personalised clothing items have been no strangers to the media recently, with some appearances on TV and in the newspapers.

Firstly, On DIY SOS last week, we had Shaw Bros wearing their personalised t-shirts from Banana Moon. The plumbing specialists from South Yorkshire had the lovely GD08 t-shirts in navy with their logo embroidered on the front left breast, and a large printed text on the back to promote the company. They also wore some of their embroidered polo shirts KK400 during the show. These are hard wearing, workwear polos with a really nice fit. The guys at Shaw Bros did a tremendous job for a local family who had fallen upon hard times. The house looked amazing after they’d all finished. For any plumbing and heating work required nationally, Shaw Bros have a great reputation since 1947 and you can contact them at info@shawbros.co.uk

Then, we had the Gangnam Policeman printed t-shirts produced in fundraising efforts for Joshua Wilson, left with neuromuscular disibilities from a brain tumour at a very young age. Sgt Gary Watts and colleagues filmed the Gangnam Policeman video in response to a social media campaign using the hastag #gangnampoliceman on Twitter. The t-shirt design was organised by Floppets (a collectable toy brand) and a run of our bestselling SS28M t-shirt from fruit of the Loom were printed with a multi colour front print (pictured above).

The great social media presence has meant that people buying the t-shirts are raising much needed funds for Joshua’s healthcare but they also posting loads of fun photographs on Twitter wearing the t-shirts. If you want to follow the people involved on Twitter, there is Josh the incredible young man himself @JourneyJoshuas, his Mum @DawnFidler, @FloppetsUK and the star of the video @SgtGaryWatts. Also don’t forget the hashtag #gangnampoliceman. You can buy the t-shirts in aid of Josh’s healthcare at superjosh.org.uk

Finally, Banana Moon were featured in the local press this week – The Telegraph and Argus of Bradford. We have designed a special Wembley edition t-shirt for Friends of Bradford City supporters group. The design is based on the song about striker James Hanson’s occupation before he became a professional footballer – ‘He used to work at the Co-Op’.

The Co-Op came to hear about the t-shirt and decided to buy a few hundred for staff in their stores to wear on the day of the Capital One Cup Final this weekend to support Bradford City and James.
Let’s just hope for a City win in the final and James to score the winner would be lovely!
