Staff at Bridport Leisure Centre are taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and are encouraging their customers to join them.

The annual fundraising event takes place on Friday, December 13. People are encouraged to raise funds for Save the Children by wearing a Christmas jumper and making a minimum donation of £1.

Sally Bragg, Bridport Leisure Centre HR manager, said: "We're pleased to support this great charity. If everyone joins us in wearing something festive and making a donation, we can help to really make a difference."

Donations can ensure a child can go to school, or support a young person, forced to leave their home to build a new life.

Save the Children works in the UK and around the world to make sure children are safe and healthy, supporting them to learn, grow and become who they want to be.
