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.’

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

‘I’m originally from St Helens, Merseyside and there’s nothing like Blue Day up there.’
Little Learners Day Care, Clarke’s Road, Kingston:
