WIB launch photoWe're pleased to announce that Wear It Blue is back for 2015!

Following a fantastic launch last year, local schools and businesses are invited to wear blue on Friday May 1 (or another day of their choice). Wear It Blue day will raise much-needed funds for Leo’s Appeal, the fundraising campaign for the children’s wards at Milton Keynes Hospital. In return for a donation of just £1, participants can wear anything they like – tops, hats, trousers, socks, even wigs – so long as it’s blue, the colour of Leo’s Appeal.

The charity also has a number of limited edition Wear It Blue tshirts that our children's ward staff (pictured, left) are kindly modelling for us.

Already ten organisations have signed up including Two Mile Ash School, New Chapter Primary, Bidwells property consultants and staff at MK Dons football club. Sarah Thompson, Marketing Executive at The MK Dons said: “We are really pleased to be taking part in Wear It Blue 2015. This will be a fun event and we are delighted to be supporting our local hospital.”
