It was a chance to enjoy the season for Soham Village College students who held a Get Festive Day to help people in need.
Students wore a Christmas jumper while asking for donations for the newly-founded Soham Hygiene Bank.
This charity collects both household and personal cleaning products - everything from washing up liquid, toilet rolls, washing powder, to deodorant, shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste and also new underwear/socks for children.
The hygiene bank also supports the food bank and the college with personal supplies for students whose families are experiencing hard times.
"In total we filled more than 15 large boxes with items ranging from nappies to washing up liquid through to deodorant and shampoo," Jocelyn Whittle said.
