A DAY WITH CAPTAIN BEANY

Yesterday we were lucky enough to welcome Captain Beany to Shreddies HQ. Captain Beany is a fundraising superhero who has raised over £150,000 for charity.

He has completed many challenges from sitting in a bathtub of baked beans for 100 hours, to pushing a baked bean tin for a mile using just his nose.

We had 3 of our lovely girls Zoe, Megan & Georgia interview him and get him to spill the beans on what it was like to be Captain Beany.

He explained to us how his love of everything bean related had led to him converting his home into The Baked Bean Museum Of Excellence which attracts visitors from as far away as America.

Captain Beany then went on to say how his love of beans was unfortunately having a negative effect on his love life. Eating 3 catering size tins of beans a day will give obvious flatulence related side effects.

This is the reason he contacted Shreddies to seek out our help to make him some Shreddies to fit over his costume. We will be making some custom made gold flatulence filtering superhero underwear very soon.  We then headed outside for lunch and had jacket potatoes with cheese and beans .Captain Beany then put Shreddies underwear to the test, after seeing for himself how well they work he even thought about asking Wonder Woman out on a date.

He then presented a large number of our staff with Captain Beany toys as gifts, before posing for photographs inside and outside the mill.  

We will be releasing the footage taken on the day over the next couple of weeks, so keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook & YouTube pages.  

I would also like to thank deVOL Kitchens & for letting us use the beautiful Air Kitchen Showroom as the setting for our interview and photo shoot.  And a special thank you to Tim for all of the filming / photography work he did.
