What is Christmas Jumper Day?

Christmas Jumper Day is organised by Save The Children  and they ask everyone dig out your favourite festive sweater and dress up for Christmas with your friends, family, colleagues or school.

The Meacher-Jones office were more than happy to don their Christmas Jumpers to help Save The Children this Christmas.

Save The Children Said..

It’s the most magical time of year – fairy lights and baubles, snowmen and Christmas trees. And on 15 December, we want it all – on a jumper.

On Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, all over the country, thousands of people will be donning their daftest, most wonderful woollies – all for a great cause.

Together, we can make Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day the biggest, silliest day ever.

You’ll be surprised at just how many of people get involved. Your colleagues, classmates, neighbours, friends and family are looking for an excuse to flaunt their fabulous knits.

Everyone who joins in and gives £2 to take part on 15 December will be making the world better with a sweater.

Everyone who donates £2 to take part in this year’s silliness will be doing some serious good around the world.

Your jumper could be the difference between a hot meal or no meal. It can help bring essential healthcare, education, protection and food to millions of children around the world who are missing out on these basics.

Your support can protect children from easily preventable yet still deadly diseases like malaria, diarrhoea and pneumonia.

And it can help us reach children who are forgotten. Maybe simply because they were born in a remote village. Or maybe because they’re girls or refugees, have a disability or are from a minority group.

Feel free to go full-on TwinklyBaublePomPoms or play it cool with a SnowyTreeStar. Either way, the money you raise can help make a world of difference to children in desperate need. It will also give them the chance to be children again.

On 15 December, nothing’s out of bounds, except good taste. Go big. Go bold. It’s Christmas.
