MK Dons took part in the first ‘Wear it Blue Day’ last Friday to raise money for Leo’s Appeal.
Lee Hodson, Ben Reeves, Charlie Burns, Brendan Galloway and Goalkeeper Coach Paul Heald visited the children’s ward at MK General Hospital to help out with the fundraising activates and hand out presents to some of the patients.
Fundraising Officer Jenny Howells said: “I was really excited to have the support of the MK Dons and their visit to the ward brought much excitement to the patients who are staying with us.”
Local schools, businesses, and hospital staff were invited to wear something blue to school or work on Friday 2nd May to show their support for the appeal, which is raising money for Leo’s Appeal.
Leo’s Appeal, launched by the charity in September 2013, is raising £200,000 for the children’s ward at the hospital, making a difference to the time spent in hospital for babies, children and their families.
The appeal has so far raised over £10,000 and with continued support from the local community will continue to gain momentum.
Jenny explained: “All the money raised from Wear it Blue will help to fund items that the hospital couldn’t ordinarily afford. It will make a huge difference.”
