Weston Hospicecare is calling on supporters to take part in a new initiative.

The charity's #WearItBlue encourages schools, workplaces and community groups to dress in blue in exchange for a suggested minimum donation of £1.

It will take part during the national hospicecare awareness week, which runs from October 14-18, and supporters are being encouraged to use the hashtag #WearItBlue on social media.

Community fundraiser Rachel Mansfield says: "#WearItBlue is an exciting project and we hope it will give our supporters a fun way to raise money to support our work.

"You can simply get your workplace to wear blue for a day that suits you during the week or supporters can take the theme further if they wish.

The hospice's shops will be running promotions on blue clothing on October 16.
