Kind-hearted members of the Edinburgh Trams team are set to help a worthy cause by pulling on their favourite winter woollies as part of their festive celebrations.

During the countdown to Christmas, they’re raising money in support of an initiative by Save the Children that aims to provide disadvantaged youngsters in the UK and around the world with the resources they need to have a more prosperous future.

So far drivers and other front-line staff, together with office-based members of the team, have already raised nearly £150 by joining in with the charity’s annual Christmas Jumper Day that took place earlier this week.

Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams’ Managing Director, commented:

All year round, our team is looking for ways to support those who are most vulnerable, but each December they do the best they can to spread the joy and hope that’s traditionally at the heart of Christmas.

Many of them are already well and truly in the festive spirit and need no excuse to wear their silliest eye-catching jumpers, but there is a serious side to the fun, and we’re thrilled to be playing our part in this popular seasonal fundraiser.

Edinburgh Trams is also gearing up to collect toys for the Cash for Kids appeal which aims to ensure disadvantaged children receive a present on Christmas Day.
