People in Chester have been jump-ering for joy this festive season.
On Friday, December 13, schoolchildren, students and work colleagues made the world better with a sweater by wearing a Christmas jumper for the day.
Some raised cash for Save the Children by wearing their woolly with pride, others raised funds for different charities and some just did it for fun.
Even members of the Chronicle team made an effort, which included Santa hats and slippers.
Chester Catholic High School
Pupils at Chester Catholic High School raised funds for three charities (Chester Aid to the Homeless, ACROSS and Turning Concern into Action) by donating money for the privilege of swapping their school uniform for a woolly jumper decorated with Santa, reindeers, Christmas trees, sledges and snowflakes.
The Firs School
Pupils and staff at The Firs School showed their Christmas spirit by wearing their Christmas jumpers to school in aid of Save the Children. The event raised approximately £150 which will help to support children in difficult circumstances.
