Our team celebrated Christmas Jumper Day on Friday, with festive knitwear and lots of treats to share. There was an array of colourful jumpers, wonderful woollies and even one homemade creation with lights! We also brought in some treats to share on the day. With a suggested donation of £2, it’s a fun and easy way to raise some money for charity and bring a little festive cheer into the office.
Our video above shares some little snippets from the day and shows off many of our christmas jumpers.
We are delighted to announce that we raised a total of £53 which has gone to Save The Children. This is a very worthwhile charity, who help children both in the UK and all over the rest of the world. Their website states that 40.8m children have been reached directly by their global movement, in 118 countries.
Businesses, schools and other organisations all over the country took part in Christmas Jumper Day. In fact this year a record 5.1 million people are estimated to have taken part! So hopefully the grand total total raised will eclipse last year’s total. Save The Children use the funds raised for a variety of projects that change children’s lives. They aim to help children all over the world grow up healthy and safe, and get an education, so they can grow up to be who they want to be.
