A Blue-tiful Day! Blue Day 2014 PDF Print E-mail

 Well what a blue-tiful day that was! Blue Day 2014

 

Portsmouth was a lovely shade of blue on Friday 2 May, as people around the city joined in with Blue Day 2014!

 

Over 80 schools and organisations took part; thousands of people dug out their blue clothes and joined in with our mass fundraiser.

 

A HUGE thank you to everyone who took part. Click here to see a fab photo gallery on The News website; see if you can spot yourself! 

Blue Day at Fratton Park

 

 

The basic idea is to have a dress in blue day, but all sorts of activities took place to boost the fun and funds! There were quizes and cake sales, raffles and runs, football matches and fancy dress, and the Spinnaker Tower went blue again!

 

The Trust's merry band of collector grabbed some buckets and headed to Fratton Park for the last match of the season the day after Blue Day. The fans were in good spirits and very generous; we raised a staggering £1,840 - thank you to everyone who put something into the buckets. 

  

 

The Big Blue Gig and Big Blue Sin raised some noise on Blue Day and also raised around £387.89 - thanks to the Wedgewood Rooms for a great night!

 

The Blue Day Selfies were a great new addition this year and helped to raise funds and awareness - we loved seeing those photos!

 

Blue Day 2014 raised around £20,000 - which is fantastic!
