Supporting Christmas Jumper Day – And When It Is
It’s Christmas Jumper Day this Friday! But what’s it all about?
It started as a fundraising campaign back in 2012, launched by Save the Children. Since then, on the second or third Friday of every December, festive fundraisers have worn Christmas jumpers to work or school, making a minimum donation of £2 to the charity.
So go ahead – flaunt your festive knitwear and make the world better with a sweater!
Peter Andre as well as a couple of other celebrities have joined the campaign.
He said: “My Christmas jumpers are always over the top, I love lights, tinsel and plenty of colour when it comes to my festive knit.
“The kids are such a big part of Christmas and I’m so lucky that I get to spend it with them.
“I hope everyone can get involved with Christmas Jumper Day this year and donate £2 to Save the Children.”
