Wear Your Favourite Christmas Jumper This Friday!

This Friday is Christmas Jumper Day – wear your cheesiest Christmas jumper, get into the Christmas spirit, and donate £1 to Save the Children!


You can sign up on the Save the Children website, and then all you have to do is wear your woolliest and get your colleagues, friends and family to join in. If you don’t already own a corny Christmas jumper, you can get creative and make your own by adding tinsel, stars, sequins, baubles and cotton wool snow to a plain jumper. Save the Children have even more ideas on their website!


The charity is also asking you to help them break the World Record for the most people dancing in Christmas jumpers (highly competitive!). Join them at the ice rink at the Westfield London Shopping Centre on Friday at 8am – make sure you register on the World Record site first, and then learn your moves from the Christmas jumper dance routine choreographed by Arlene Phillips


On the day, you can tweet pictures of yourself and your friends wearing your Christmas jumpers with the hashtag #xmasjumperday, or post them on the Save the Children Facebook page.


Your donation of just £1 really can help save lives. It could buy:

  • one day’s high-nutrient food to help treat a severely malnourished child
  • nine sachets of oral rehydration treatment for children suffering from life-threatening diarrhoea
  • antibiotics to treat three newborn babies with potentially deadly infections


So cosy up, and make the world better with a sweater this Friday!
