CHRISTMAS JUMPER APPEAL: SAVE THE CHILDREN (21.12.16)

Staff and students will donate £1 and wear Christmas jumpers in aid of the STC charity. By joining in on Christmas Jumper Day, you are helping to save children’s lives. It sounds silly, but just by dressing up in festive knits for the day and donating, you really will help us solve some very serious problems – and change the lives of children. Your support means we can bring vital things like food, medicine and shelter to children who urgently need them.
