Who we are
#MakeItBlue was formed by a group of events and entertainment industry professionals during the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic in the UK. A global community of problem solvers, we came together in a spirit of mutual support and solidarity.
We called on our friends in the wider sporting and music communities and invited them to #MakeItBlue in their own personal way. Music legends Liam Gallagher, Beverley Knight and Joss Stone, as well as 1917 star George Mackay, Olympic sprinter Iwan Thomas and all three Superbike brothers, Andrew, Glenn and Graeme Irwin, were among the first to join our campaign.
MAKEITBLUE CIC is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to raising funds for mental health charities.
