Primary school has best Christmas jumpers fund-raising generously for children's charity




Children at Great Whelnetham Primary School have been donning festive jumpers to raise money for charity.

Parents were asked to make a small donation of £1 or more to Save the Children as part of the fund-raising effort, with the children also enjoying a Christmas dinner together on the same day.

Save the Children helps to improve the lives of children in various ways and schools across the country raise money for it every year by wearing Christmas jumpers.

Angela Kimber, who manages the school office, said: “There are so many children who aren’t so lucky. Together, an impact can be made.”

The primary school regularly helps good causes, with teacher Claire Masson currently planning a trip to Sierra Leone for the Street Child project.
