Newington’s World of Wonderful Woolly Jumpers

Children swapped uniforms for bright and crazy woollies at Newington Community primary School, Ramsgate, on Friday, December 14.

They joined many thousands of children and adults across the UK for Christmas Jumper Day.

Pupils and staff made donations to wear colourful tops all day in a bid to help create a brighter future for children less fortunate than themselves.

Their effort raised £250 for the Save the Children appeal.

Head Teacher Cliff Stokes said: “Every year our Newington community pulls together to support a raft of deserving causes.

“When it comes to helping others, particularly children, our pupils, families and staff are always among the first to put their hands in their pockets and help others.

 

“It is heart-warming to see our boys and girls supporting those less fortunate than themselves even when many of our families are facing tough economic times – for us at Newington that generosity of giving and helping others embodies both our ethos and the true spirit of Christmas.”
