BROMSGROVE’S Blue cross is urging residents to ‘Go Blue’ to help the charity raise more cash towards its new revamped centre.
A number of activities have been suggested, including participants being sponsored to wear blue for the day, wearing a blue wig or having their face painted blue.
Among the other suggestions are a dress down denim day where people pay £1 to wear their jeans to work or school.
Residents could also hold a big blue bake day, selling cakes to their colleagues, classmates or friends or take part in the Big Blue Bungee – the charity is looking for 60 people to step out of their comfort zone and do a bungee jump.
Other suggestions include a Big Blue Balloon Blow-up where people get sponsored to blow up as many blue balloons (which will be provided by the charity) in a designated time or a Blue is the answer quiz. That involves people testing their friends’ general knowledge for the cause.
Two people who are undertaking blue-themed challenges are Neil Edwards and Robi Chaudhuri from Bromsgrove’s Blue Cross.
One of them will be taking place on Bromsgrove High Street – outside the town’s Blue Cross charity shop – at 3.30pm today (Friday).
It is blue themed because the pair have been challenged to see which one does not ‘turn the air blue’ first.
