Swaffham school's Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children




Primary school children showcased their festive and colourful jumpers last week to raise funds for an important cause.

It was 'Wear a Christmas Jumper Day' at Heartwood Primary and Nursery School in Swaffham on Friday in aid of Save the Children, an annual tradition for pupils.

Founded in 1919, this global charity's goal is that by 2030, no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday.

The White Cross Road school raised £102 for the cause as the children enjoyed their festive day.

Acting headteacher Emily McMillen said: "Making a difference for others in our community and beyond is at the heart of our curriculum, with compassion a core value of the school vision.

"Every year we raise money for Save the Children by contributing a donation to wear a Christmas jumper. Children have been learning about the charity and how their donations will help make a difference to the lives of others."
