Christmas Jumper Day - Friday 11th Dec

MAKE THE WORLD BETTER WITH A SWEATER

It doesn't matter where you are – on Christmas Jumper Day all you need to do is get your silliest jumper out and give 50p or £1 to Save the Children.

IT'S SO EASY TO TAKE PART!

This year’s been not so good for loads of kids
and grown-ups. When it comes to having fun,
we’ve got some catching up to do. And seen as
it’s the end of the whole year, I know you’ll
give it 100%.
Wanna know the bit I love most?
Every sweater can help children
change the future. For good.
That’s pretty cool.
So jumpers on,
people! Let’s do this.
