Will you be wearing a festive woolly pulley for charity on Friday, December 8?

Pull on your favourite Christmas jumper on Friday, December 8 and join in the hospital charity Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Over and Above.

The North Devon District Hospital charity is hoping as many schools, workplaces, groups and individuals as possible will don their festive woolly pulleys and help raise money.

People can raise funds for the Cancer and Wellbeing Appeal by texting OVER15 plus the amount to 70070 (eg OVER15£5), or you choose a hospital department of your choice such as the cardiology unit, stroke unit, Caroline Thorpe children’s ward and Seamoor Chemotherapy Unit.

Fundraiser Julie Whitton said: “Our hospital charity Christmas Jumper Day is a great opportunity for staff, patients, community groups, schools, and the general public to embrace Christmas in a fun and festive way and to reflect on how important our hospital is to us by supporting our local services.”

When you’ve collected your money, send to Over and Above Fundraising Team, North Devon District Hospital, Raleigh Park, Barnstaple, EX31 4JB, or donate on line at
