A HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in Blue Day 2013 on Friday 19th April!
Thousands of people across the city went blue and raised funds for the Trust; even the Spinnaker Tower went blue! The basic idea is to have a dress in blue day but all sorts of weird and wonderful fundraisers were organised to boost the fun and funds! Staff in Barclays Bank in Southsea dressed up as smurfs for the big day, staff from Grosvenor Casino in Gunwharf Quays sat in a bath full of cold baked beans, and Front Lawn Junior School had a sing-off, boys versus girls, to the Bruno Mars song Count On Me! Almost 100 schools and businesses across the city are got involved!
The BIG BLUE GIG was a huge success; people packed the Wedgewood Rooms out last night and danced the night away! We will let you know the total raised from the gig once the figure is in. Thanks to all the bands who took part, the Wedgewood Rooms for hosting, and to all those who came along and supported it. Click here for more details.
Our bucket collection at Fratton Park on Saturday at the last home match was also a huge success; we raised £1737.35. Thanks to those who shook our buckets and to those who donated!
