Staff and students at Peterborough Regional College got into the Christmas spirit whilst raising money for charity by wearing their festive woolly jumpers as part of National Christmas Jumper Day.

Last Friday (December 13) the College’s new Enterprise Lounge was filled with an array of colours, patterns and sparkles as staff and students modelled their festive outfits.

Each person who took part donated £1 for the cause, which was to raise money for Save the Children. The money raised will help save children’s lives in some of the toughest parts of the world, including Syria, Liberia, Haiti and Bangladesh.

To encourage people to get more involved, the College held a ‘Best Customised Jumper’ competition where the winner received a £30 shopping voucher and a tasty Christmas pudding kindly donated by the College’s Parcs Restaurant. Vice Principal, Brian Redshaw had the tough job of judging the competition.

Well done to everyone who took part and as it currently stands, the College have raised £188 for Save the Children with donations still coming in.
