Fundraising day is nothing to be blue about
We're delighted to announce that more than £2,500 has been raised from our first Wear it Blue Day!
Earlier this year, we invited local schools and businesses to wear the appeal colour of blue on Friday May 2 to raise money for Leo's Appeal, which is fundraising for the children's wards at Milton Keynes Hospital.
We had a great response and at least 15 organisations took part in the fundraising day including New Chapter, Queen Eleanor and Tickford Park Primary schools, medical recruitment company ID Medical, DoubleTree by Hilton, Bidwells property consultants, FS1 Recruitment and MK News.
Wear It Blue for Team Leo
Milton Keynes Hospital Charity is excited to be gearing up for Wear It Blue day next week. The response from local schools and businesses to sign up to join Team Leo has been fantastic and Wear It Blue day looks set to be a roaring success.
Local schools, businesses, and hospital staff have been invited to wear something blue to school or work on Friday May 2 to show their support for the appeal, which is raising £200,000 for the children’s ward at the hospital. This could be something as simple as blue socks, or a blue tie, through to dressing head to toe in blue!
Participating schools will be entered into a prize draw to win books for their pupils, and hospital departments will be competing against each other to see who can raise the most money. There will be lots of activity and fundraising going on and mascot Leo the Lion will be making some appearances too.
