The Royal, Commercial Road, Landport:

PUB customers who parted with their loose change got the chance to paint a barman’s body blue.

By the end of the day George Bartholomew’s arms, legs and face were covered.

But it was all in good spirits because the quirky idea helped to raise £100.

Money was also collected from donation buckets inside the pub, which was decorated with blue ribbons and balloons.

George’s brother Mark Mayo, 24, who also works at the pub, said: ‘Everyone had a laugh raising money for a fantastic cause and George really enjoyed himself.

‘It was nice seeing everyone get involved.’

Arundel Court Infant School, Northam Street, Landport:

A BLUE cake sale helped to raise over £300 for the Tom Prince Cancer Trust.

Staff and students also dressed up in blue clothes.

Rob Jones, deputy headteacher at the school, said: ‘It was great to see all the children helping out a great local cause.’

Mulberry Park Children’s Nursery, Havant Road, Cosham:

CHILDREN supported the cause by coming to school in blue clothes and face paint.

A small cake sale helped to raise £15.

Childcare manager Claire Geraghty said: ‘We wanted to show our support because this is a big Portsmouth charity event.

‘I’m originally from St Helens, Merseyside and there’s nothing like Blue Day up there.’

Little Learners Day Care, Clarke’s Road, Kingston:

PUPILS got in the spirit of Blue Day with a range of party games.

Children played pass the parcel and musical bumps and sang nursery rhymes as they walked around Kingston Park.

More than £60 was raised from donations on the day. Tom Prince’s uncle also attended the school and supported the children in their fundraising efforts. Little Learners Day Care manager Vicky George said: ‘The kids enjoyed themselves and all the parents were really supportive.’
