Staff from the region's leading four-star hotel will be getting into the Christmas spirit by donning an assortment of spectacular jumpers to help raise money for Save the Children.

Part of National Christmas Jumper Day, the team from DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury are hoping their garish festive attire will raise plenty of funds for the charity which works in 120 countries saving children's lives.

The team is also hoping guests who visit the venue for their Christmas parties will also put on their festive finest or just give £1 towards the cause.

Jon Peek, who heads up Cadbury House's care committee said: "At this time of the year it's always easy to get caught up in the spirit of having a good time so the idea to get involved was so staff and guests would spare a thought for those who are perhaps not so fortunate as ourselves.

"A donation of just £1 really can make the difference between life and death and if by having a little fun at the same time we are able to help those who need it most will make this festive season one to remember."

According to Save the Children a £1 donation could pay for nine sachets of oral rehydration treatment for children suffering from diarrhoea.

£95 could pay for a midwife's training to help ensure babies are delivered safely in the poorest parts of the world.

Jon added: "We hope we won't put guests off too much with the variety of jumpers we intend to wear and hope it will bring a smile to everyone's face this Christmas."
