Yeovil College students raise cash for campaign
12:00pm Wednesday 25th December 2013 in News
A LEVEL students at Yeovil College have raised more than £130 for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
Students and staff each donated £1 to the charity and wore their favourite festive knitwear.
People in colleges, schools, offices and homes across the country took part and, overall, Save the Children raised more than £200,000 for its important work.
While many at Yeovil College proudly wore their shop-bought sweaters, other came up with their own unique creations, decorated with baubles, tinsel and bells.
A Level lecturer Wendy Jones said “Yeovil College’s A Level Academy put on its warmest, wackiest and most wonderful festive woollies to raise money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
"We joined in with thousands of people across the UK to help make the world better with a sweater! The money raised will help save children’s lives in some of the toughest parts of the world, including Syria, Liberia, Haiti and Bangladesh.
"Everyone had a great time supporting a very worthy cause.”
