FROM blue cupcakes to blue mayonnaise, one business is always eager to sign up for Blue Day.

La Croissanterie, a baguette shop in Osborne Road, Southsea, is one of many shops and businesses that has already signed up for this year’s fundraiser.

The shop has supported Blue Day and the Tom Prince Cancer Trust for a few years and has always been inventive on how to turn everyday products into something with a blue theme.

And this year, will see the return of blue cakes and blue mayo.

Manager of the La Croissanterie Andre Guedeney said they are still deciding what else they will be doing for Blue Day.

The 33-year-old said: ‘We have signed up for Blue Day because we like to support a local charity.

‘Tom was from Portsmouth and supported Pompey so it is right that the city celebrates Blue Day.

‘We have been doing it for a few years now and we get a good response.

‘We always sell blue cupcakes and last year we did blue mayo.

‘Other ideas for this year are still being thought of and will be decided nearer the day.’

Blue Day is being held on May 2 and is marking the 10th anniversary since Tom died from osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer the day before his 16th birthday.

His parents, Adele and Clinton decided to set up the Tom Prince Cancer Trust in his memory and with The News have so far organised seven blue days, raising more than £800,000.
