Derbyshire pupils don Christmas jumpers in January - but it's all for a good cause
Youngsters at a Derbyshire school donned Christmas jumpers in January – but all for a good cause.
The Newton Primary School pupils were celebrating the money they raised last time they wore their seasonal sweaters to school.
They wore Christmas jumpers to the Hall Lane school one day in December, raising more than £200 for Cruse Bereavement Care.
Ben Wray, headteacher, said: “Cruse is a charity close to the school’s heart, because we have had families that have suffered loss.
“We had some very generous donations from parents and had a bun sale and we raised quite a lot of money.”
Sue Spencley, from Cruse, visited the school to collect the cash this week - with several pupils putting their Christmas jumpers back on to mark the occasion.
Mr Wray said: “It will help fund the space Cruse uses for counselling sessions.”
Cruse offers “support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies”.
