Turn blue and raise money for a local hospice.

 St Ann's Hospice, which is based in Little Hulton, is asking people to wear something blue to work or school, to baking something blue for a bake sale, or craft something blue for a craft-and-coffee morning. 

This is to raise funds for the hospice.

Other ideas include holding some fun games themed on the colour blue, like a quiz, or arrange a run, walk swim or cycle dressed in blue.
