Staff members at East Ham Care Centre and the Newham Centre for Mental Health in Plaistow are well and truly ready for the festive season after a day of seasonal fun.
Student Nurse Hayley Reed organised a day for the staff to put on their best festive jumpers to mark Christmas Jumper Day and put on a mixture of events to raise money for the mental health charity.
The charity who Hayley has decided to run the London Marathon in aid of in 2016.
Hayley Reed said: “Everyone entered into the spirit of the day and wore some outlandish jumpers.
“This will be my first Marathon - I am very scared but hopefully my little legs will keep me going all the way round.”
Everyone wearing a jumper had to make a £2 donation to the charity, while there was also a stall set up selling Christmas treats including chocolate truffles, snowflake sugar cookies, peppermint bark, mince pies and cupcakes.
