SLIDESHOW - Festive fun with Christmas jumpers

Written byROB SMYTH

CHRISTMAS spirit was flying through the air like Santa’s sleigh as people young and old donned festive jumpers to raise money for charity.

Whether it be Father Christmas or Frosty the Snowman to Rudolph the red nose reindeer and a decorated Christmas tree, people across Burton pulled on their wacky designs to support Save Our Children.

Staff at Stretton Day Nursery, in Derby Road, got into the spirit with both youngsters and staff donning festive clothing.

Nursery manager Helen Eaton said: “We first decided to just wear our Christmas jumpers on Christmas Eve but then this kept moving back and back until we decided to wear them from Friday up until we break up for Christmas.

“We also learned that Save the Children were holding a Christmas Jumper Day and knew we could do some good and raise some money for the great cause.

“We already have banked £75 from a recent nativity play and hope that people will continue to dig deep and make a donations in the run up Christmas.”

Belmont Primary School, in Swadlincote, and John Taylor High School, in Barton, also took part in the ‘wear a Christmas jumper day’ to help raise money for the charity and to have some fun.
