Children to wear Christmas jumpers to raise charity cash
2:40pm Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
CHILDREN are set to wear their warmest woolies to raise charity cash.
Youngsters from Scooters PlayClub, based at Hanbury First School, will try to make the world better with a sweater on Friday, December 13. They will be raising money for Save the Children as part of national Christmas Jumper Day.
The 120 children and staff will be joining hundreds of thousands of people in schools, offices and homes across the country as they sport a festive sweater for the day and donate £1 or more.
The money they raise will help save children’s lives in some of the toughest parts of the world, including Syria, Liberia, Haiti, Bangladesh and the Philippines.
Managers Jo Skeys and Emma Nash-Lewis said: “We hope this will be a really fun day for all the children and staff involved. We are certainly looking forward to it. The children have put so much work into the day and we are all really proud of them.”
