Christmas is getting closer by the minute, so it’s about time we dug out our festive knits – and what better day to wear them than on Christmas jumper day?
The event, which raises money for children’s rights charity Save The Children each year, was launched in 2012. It invites men and women to wear a Christmas jumper for the day and then to donate a minimum of £2 towards the charity, or £1 if participants are in nursery, school or a youth group.
It always falls on a Friday in December and this year it falls on December 11th, although participants are encouraged to wear their festive knits whenever they want and simply donating to Save The Children to take part.
You can donate by calling the Save the Children Supporter Care team on 020 7012 6400, or creating your own fundraising page online.
Despite the Coronavirus pandemic raging on, Christmas Jumper Day will of course continue as planned and there’s no doubt that fashion influencers will be sharing their sparkly and novelty knits on Instagram rather than showing them off in the office.
Save The Children and WN encourage you to dig out last years jumper if you’d rather not buy new, or to buy a second hand, sustainable or long-lasting knit. There are plenty of sweaters that can be worn all through winter and into spring, such as argyle or fairisle knits.
