STUDENTS AND STAFF ‘JUMP’ AT THE CHANCE TO WEAR FESTIVE KNITS FOR CHARITY
Staff and students at a north east arts college are feeling festive and showing off their best jolly jumpers, all in the name of charity.
The further education students at Cleveland College of Art and Design in Middlesbrough joined staff in dressing in their most seasonal sweaters for the Save the Children Santa Christmas Jumper Day, each paying £2 to raise as much as possible for the much-loved charity.
The campaign aims to raise funds to help the charity to bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.
Supporting the campaign for the third year and doing their bit in a Christmas knit, the specialist arts college hopes to donate as much as they possibly can to help these much-loved charities.
Teresa Latcham, Student Services Manager at CCAD, said: “It is excellent that so many of our students got involved in this year’s Christmas Jumper Day, with surprisingly few duplicate jumpers on display!
“We think it’s important that we can give something back, especially to areas of the world that need our help most. Christmas is the season for giving and while we were having fun laughing at some quite cheesy festive jumpers, it was good to know we were also raising money for communities who really need our help.”
