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.

Parents of The Firs also demonstrated  their generosity by donating £635 at the  school's Christmas service on December  11, which will be shared between Chester  Aid to the Homeless and Shelter.

Headteacher Margaret Denton said: “I  am delighted by kindness shown by pupils, parents and staff for these excellent  causes.”

Cruise Chester

Propoganda threw a Christmas  Jumper Party at Cruise Chester.

The Bluestones medical team in  Chester raised £40 for Save for Children by  wearing their Christmas jumpers.

Fundraising will continue next year  with events in aid of the Countess of  Chester Hospital’s Babygrow Appeal.

Sir John Deane's College

Festive students from Sir John  Deane’s College  in Northwich raised  funds for the DEC’s  Philippines Appeal by  selling cakes and manning a  tombola.

And on the same day students also  collected  goods to donate to the Mid  Cheshire Foodbank.

The staff and pupils at Newton  Primary School raised £292 for Save the  Children and awarded a prize to the child  in each class with the most original  Christmas jumper.
