Blues'day Tuesday

We’re so fortunate to have such engaged corporate partners supporting our work. During Love Your Lungs Week they went the extra mile by donning something blue in our first ever Blues’day Tuesday. 

On Tuesday 18th June our corporate partners showed their support for Love Your Lungs Week by dressing up in something blue for work in our first ever Blues’day Tuesday. All entrants paid £2 to take part with some companies even imposing fines on colleagues who forgot to wear something blue.

To help raise awareness of Love Your Lungs week they also shared photos on twitter of them in their Blues’day gear. Below are some of our favourite photos from the day:

UKATA

The UKATA team were keen to don BLF t-shirts to show their support. UKATA are our latest mesothelioma patron and are a leading authority on asbestos training.
