Staff from the Specsavers store in Chester le Street donned their festive knits on Christmas Jumper Day 2016 in exchange for a donation to St Cuthbert’s Hospice in Durham.

Incredible work

Store director, Ross McLachlan said: ‘Nothing says Christmas more than a fun and festive jumper. We wanted to support the incredible work St Cuthbert’s Hospice in Durham does in providing palliative and end of life care all year round, and especially over Christmas when coping with a life limiting illness can be all the more upsetting.

‘St Cuthbert’s Hospice makes every day count for those affected by life-limiting illnesses and we hope when staff, patients and families at the hospice see the team at Chester-le-Street Specsavers dressed in their Christmas jumpers it will raise a smile.’
