Woolly thinking raises £1.6m

Three hundred pupils and staff at Minerva Primary Academy in Bristol got into the festive spirit last week by taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Supporters who popped on their pullovers up and down the nation have raised more than £1.6 million in the past three years.

The slogan is to “make the world better with a sweater” with a £1 donation per woolly.

Minerva principal Gemma Jackson said: “The children really enjoyed wearing their jumpers and staff had a great deal of fun too.

“Importantly, this event gave us the opportunity to talk to our students about the work Save the Children undertakes and the impact it has on underprivileged children across the globe.”
