Dig out your Christmas knitwear and help give the Romford Recorder’s First Step campaign a festive finale on December 18.

The Recorder has been raising funds for children’s charity First Step – which supports youngsters with disabilities and/or learning difficulties – throughout 2015.

As our campaign draws to a close we’re calling upon Havering’s schools, businesses, clubs, groups and individuals to help us push up the fundraising total by donning a Christmas jumper.

With the fantastic support of our readers and the charity’s supporters we have already raised almost £50,000 for First Step, which will help it give much needed assistance to families.

Recorder news editor, Emma Lake, said: “We’ve been blown away by the fantastic support throughout 2015 and hope you’ll join us once again in this fun, festive fundraiser to support the fantastic work that First Step does.”

To take part just wear your most outrageous Christmas jumper – whether it features Father Christmas, reindeer, snowflakes or puddings – on December 18 and pledge £2 to First Step by texting RCDR50 £2 to 70070.

Pictures from the day will be featured in the Christmas edition of the Recorder, which will be out on Christmas Eve.
