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 degree students at Cleveland College of Art and Design’s (CCAD) university-level campus in Hartlepool 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 fourth year and doing their bit in a Christmas knit, the specialist arts college hopes to donate as much as they possibly can to help Save the Children.
Teresa Latcham, Student Services Manager at CCAD, said: “It was fantastic to see the colourful, fun and festive jumpers on show again this year, now an annual event on the college calendar.
“This time of year it is important to think of those who are less fortunate, and both staff and students enjoy dressing up in their Christmas winter woollies for such a good cause.”
Save the Children is an international non-governmental organisation that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.
