People across the city are getting in the festive spirit as Christmas draws closer, but perhaps none more so than the partners at John Lewis.
Staff throughout the department store in Norwich donned a variety of Christmas jumpers in aid of Save The Children's annual fundraising effort.
Branch manager, Richard Marks, said: 'This is the first time we've taken part in something like this. It's quite a step forward for us.
'I'm delighted with how many partners have taken part and I'm really pleased with how much they are loving Christmas Jumper Day.'
Staff at John Lewis across the company are taking part in the annual fundraising event and donating directly to Save the Children.
The premise is that people pay £2 to wear their most festive get up to work and the charity have raised hundreds of thousands over the years from this modern Christmas giving tradition.
