After a hugely successful 2015, our 30th Anniversary Year, we're now geared up for an even bigger one this year, and, as we head into Spring, we're slipping into top gear.
We've just completed yet another RBS 6 Nations Campaign of bespoke design and Events dressing in London, Paris, Dublin, Rome, Edinburgh and Cardiff. A Grand Slam for Eddie Jones' England, but, again a fascinating tournament. We loved it. We feel so very proud to be involved.
But now, all our focus is on The 2016 Crabbies Aintree Grand National. Our showpiece, right on our doorstep. Crabbies have been nothing short of magnificent in their support for Liverpool's biggest sporting spectacular. This is their final year of sponsorship and they're going out in a blaze of glory. Paul, Wendy and John were guests of Aintree at The Grand National Media Lunch and they were touched by the occasion. A very elegantly presented occasion. Aintree certainly delivered.
The highlight, without question was the hugely emotional speech given by Judy Halewood, who was given inspirationally warm support by dear brother Peter. Judy, talked about the journey, the happy times and the sad times. She was nothing short of amazing. Crabbies have been nothing short of amazing. Furthermore, In a typical Halewood International display of class, Peter went onto wish Randox Health, the new sponsor from 2017, the very best of luck. How wonderful.
From 2017, of course, ITV take over the television coverage, having secured the rights in a deal that is only great for racing. Later on this year, we will offer our own tribute to both Channel 4 and the BBC for their dedication through the years. We've been there for all of them. They've been brilliant.
We are delighted to announce that legendary Jockey Bob Champion is the subject of our Grand National Blog next week. More news to follow. For now though a little bit of history.
