Students at Marshland High School dressed up in their best Christmas jumpers to help raise money on a national fundraising day.

The school raised more than £250 by lunchtime on Friday, with donations going to the charity Save The Children.

The entire school, including the staff, are invited to take part in Christmas Jumper Day every year, with parents paying a small donation if their child wants to participate.
