Christmas Jumper Day
This annual event is growing in popularity, with schools around the UK taking part and hoards of revellers taking to the streets for a Christmas jumper day (night) out.
Who Started Christmas Jumper Day?
Christmas Jumper Day was started by UK-based Charity ‘Save The Children’. The first ever Christmas Jumper day was held on Friday, 14th December 2012 and has grown in strength ever since.
How does Christmas Jumper Day Work?
The idea is simple, to get the nation all united together by wearing Christmas Jumpers on a single day, with a suggested donation of £2 which goes to the ‘Save The Children’ charity.
Participants can knit, buy, borrow or even upcycle an old jumper to make a festive jumper for the event.
How Do you Donate to Christmas Jumper Day?
If your Christmas Jumper day is organised by your boss, a colleague, a school or a friend you can give them cash or pay directly to the JustGiving page they will have been provided on signing up.
