Workplace colleagues across the country will be donning their festive season-themed jumpers today to raise money towards ITV’s Text Santa charity appeal.

Christmas Jumper Day is raising money for three charities this year – Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children.

Taking advantage of a day when most people would be in the office, head office staff at Greene King in Bury St Edmunds got in on the act early by holding their event on Tuesday this week.

They raised a total of £355, with a contest for creativity won by Martin Pearson from finance, on the right in the picture, who even decorated his beard with baubles.
