Two work pals are donning a different Christmas jumper for every day in December in the run up to the big day to raise money to feed the homeless.

Gemma Vasey and Jordan Creek, who both work at Bedford distribution company Asendia, have already raised hundreds of pounds for the Kinds Arms Project.

They chose the good cause as Jordan, 29, volunteers there every other Friday when the homeless are invited in to enjoy a hot meal.

“They said the people that used to provide the meat no longer can, so that is funding that they need to find.

“It is a great local cause and we really wanted to help,” said Jordan, who lives in Lidlington and has sourced some of her festive jumpers from charity shops, which she has then upcycled with festive adornments.

A jumper was also donated by the Flitwick 1st Brownies and others have also done their bit by donating festive pull overs.

Jordan said: “I’m really proud of what we have managed to achieve in such a short period of time and it’s quite nice that local people are willing to donate to help other local people that are less fortunate.”
