Droitwich care home goes blue for charity

Posted on 10 March 2011

People paying for long term care in Droitwich are going blue for charity this month in a bid to raise awareness of prostate cancer.

Westmead Care Home is using the official colour of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in its fundraising events, which involve serving blue stilton soup, blueberry crumble, blue cakes and blueberry muffins on March 24th, the Droitwich Advertiser reports.

Additionally, blue drinks will be served along with blues music, and the day ends with a screening of everybody's favourite display of blue aliens, James Cameron's Avatar.

"We wanted to support this worthy cause and so put our heads together to see how far we could take the blue theme," manager of Westmead Sue Stokes told the newspaper.

"Staff have really got into the spirit of things and our catering team proved particularly creative in coming up with a blue menu."

Prostate cancer affects more than 250,000 men and their families in the UK, according to figures from the Prostate Cancer Charity.
