Christmas Jumper Day saw Sixth Form students and staff bringing festive cheer to the corridors and classrooms at Bolton School Boys’ Division, and all for a good cause.

The aim this year was to raise enough money for Bolton Hospice to send three Hospice at Home nurses to visit a patient this Christmas, allowing them to remain at home surrounded by their family. The Boys Division rose to the occasion smashed that initial goal of £318, raising a grand total of £530 for the Hospice!

The Girls’ Division Senior School also donned their Christmas Jumpers for charity. The funds raised by girls in Years 7 to 13 and their teachers went towards the annual Urban Outreach Hamper Challenge, which sees Bolton School pupils provide goods for this local charity’s Christmas Hampers each year. The Girls’ Division raised £818.14 with their Christmas Jumper Day.
