Youngsters from a Harborough school got behind the national Christmas Jumper Day last Friday and helped raise more than £210 for charity.

Pupils from Farndon Fields Primary made and sold Christmas jumper biscuits and there was also a raffle, with the main prize being a sausage-making course for two people kindly donated by Waterloo Cottage Farm in Great Oxendon.

In total, the school raised £217.69 for Save the Children, which orchestrated the national jumper campaign.

Terri Burningham, from the school, said: “We had a fantastic day with all the
children dressed in their Christmas
jumpers, onesies and Christmas hats.

“We would really like to thank all the local shops and businesses in Harborough for their generous donations towards the
raffle.”
