Schools and businesses across the borough donned their most colourful Christmas jumpers to raise money for the Toy Appeal.

Youngsters from Sir John Heron School raised £320, while their peers at Curwen Primary School and Brampton Primary School also did their bit to support underprivileged children.

Staff at the Recorder also got involved, as did members of Newham CCG and Ambition, Aspire, Achieve’s youth club.
