People are being urged to pull on their best festive jumpers to raise funds for a new deaf academy being built in the town.

The new building is currently under construction and the doors are scheduled to open for new deaf students in 2020.

Academy fundraising bosses are now asking residents in Exmouth to wear their best Christmas jumper to work and then make a donation of at least £2 towards the new build.

Those taking part will help kit out a residential bedroom on the site and equip a specialist classroom.

Sarah Shaw, new deaf academy appeal manager, said: “It’s our seasonal challenge to local businesses and I really hope that they get their jumpers on and support us.”
