Youngsters took part from Downham Market Academy sixth form, King Edward VII Academy in King’s Lynn, Southery Academy, Eastgate Academy in Lynn and King’s Lynn Academy.

The pupils wore their Christmas jumpers, adorned with snowmen, Christmas puddings and reindeer, for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

All the schools belong to the CWA Academy Trust, which was founded by the College of West Anglia.

A spokesman for the trust said: “Students and staff have been getting festive, wearing Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save the Children.”

Launched in 2012, Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day helps raise vital funds to aid the world’s most vulnerable children.

More than £870,000 has already been raised through the charity’s campaign this year, which asked people to get silly for a serious cause.

A spokesman for the charity said: “Thank you to everyone who took part with us- we think you’re all woolly wonderful.”

Save the Children is an international non-governmental organisation that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.
