STUDENTS from Queen Katherine School, Kendal, put on their warmest, wackiest and wonderful festive woollies to join in a national fundraising day for Save the Children.
The school's 1400 pupils joined hundreds of thousands of people in schools, offices and homes up and down the country on Friday to raise money for Save the Children.
Beth Loughran, religious studies teacher said: “The money we raise will help save children’s lives in some of the toughest parts of the world, including Syria, Liberia, Haiti and Bangladesh.”
Headteacher Gareth Roscoe added: “The students and staff look to support as many charitable activities as possible during the year.
"Even in the current economic climate students at QKS are still keen to raise funds and support charities close to their hearts.
“Save the Children is a worthy cause and this event will help the school to raise vital funds and start our Christmas break in a festive way.”
