Residents and traders in Burnham-On-Sea pulled on their festive woolies to mark national Christmas Jumper Day on Friday (December 18th).

Four years after the first official Christmas Jumper Day was launched, Save the Children has joined forces with ITV’s Text Santa to raise thousands to help disadvantaged children over the festive period.

The Text Santa campaign has this year been helping Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children, giving hope to families in difficulty at Christmas.

Around four million people across the UK were expected to wear a Christmas jumper on Friday, donning extravagant knitted designs for a good cause.
