It was Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 13th December so we decided that we would participate at our Head Office this year to help to raise money for Save The Children.
Christmas Jumper Day was introduced by children’s right charity, Save The Children, in 2012. People can take part at their workplace, school, group or with family and friends. The aim of the event is to raise money for children by wearing festive jumpers on 13th December and to donate a minimum of £2 towards the organisation if you would like to participate. It said that Save The Children have raised £17m for children living in poverty in the UK and elsewhere in the world through the Christmas Jumper Day event.
On Friday, we invited everyone at our Head Office to come to work wearing their Christmas Jumper. We were not disappointed! We organised a Christmas Jumper Day Sweepstake which was won by our lovely Brenda and a Best Dressed Prize which was won by our fabulous Janice who went all out and made not one... but TWO homemade Christmas Jumpers! We had a blast looking a little silly for 1 day to help turn money into a better world and raised over £70! We hope that you and all of our customers had a great Christmas Jumper Day too!
