This year is the third annual Christmas jumper fundraiser that the charity has staged.

Gaynor Harland at the 
Save the Children charity shop in Silver Street, Doncaster town centre, said this year’s event had been ‘the best ever’.

She continued: “People have been very generous.

“We sold about 25 jumpers on the day, and also raised over £400 with a collection at Asda. A lot more people seem to have got involved this year - it’s been great.”

Youngsters from across the borough also got into the festive spirit and wore their Christmas jumpers to school and nursery.

From Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and Frosty the Snowman to Father Christmas himself - every festive character was represented.

Christmas Jumper Day has raised more than £1.6 million since launching three years ago, helping children in need all over 
the world.

It’s not too late to donate money to Save the Children for Christmas Jumper Day 2014 - the charity is still accepting donations.

And the Government is matching every donation pound for pound this year, so to get involved go to jumpers.savethechildren.org.uk or text WOOLLY to 70050 to give £2.
