YOUNGSTERS and adults showcased their colourful winter woolies for this year's Christmas Jumper Day.

Children and staff from schools and companies across the district went to school or work wearing fun festive jumpers as part of the Save The Children fundraiser, on Friday, December 15.

Staff from Timeline Auctions, in Main Road, Dovercourt donned a diverse range of jumpers, as well as pupils from Harwich and Dovercourt High School, and staff from the University of Essex.

Laura Rolph-Wills, from Dovercourt, said her children Harry, eight, who attends Shorefields School, in Clacton, and Joshua, 11, who attends Harwich and Dovercourt High School, put on their Christmas jumpers for charity.

The event is held across the UK each year with the money raised going to Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children.

This year's Christmas Jumper Day raised a whopping £167,950 nationwide.
