Wear a sweater to make the world better - the phrase resonated with students at a Harpenden school who threw themselves wholeheartedly into raising money for Save the Children.
Students and staff at Sir John Lawes School got into the festive spirit while raising much-needed funds for children around the world by participating in the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day campaign.
Now in its third year, the designated day involves students, teachers, employees and bosses from around the country ‘wearing a sweater to make the world better’ and this year the UK government is matching every pound people give.
Money is raised by people paying the suggested fee to participate - £2 per adult and £1 per child.
A team of Year 9 Textile Elves organised the day, producing presentations for forms, designing posters and displays, including all the Christmas jumper bunting.

Over £1,000 was raised by the school for Save the Children as a result of the Christmas Jumper Day.
