People across Suffolk pulled on their Christmas jumpers for Bury St Edmunds-based charity GeeWizz.

Friday was jumper-wearing day across the county, with almost 40 schools and businesses getting involved.

GeeWizz funds specialist equipment for people suffering with life-threatening conditions, disabilities or cancer.

While it was mostly employees and school children getting involved, a handful of dogs and a horse named Jimmy also took part in the fun.

Gina Long MBE, founder of GeeWizz, said: “We are so grateful to all of those who took part in our second GeeWizz Christmas Jumper Day. All donations will have a huge impact on the children and young people we support in our communities.”
