Dig out your festive knits because Christmas Jumper Day is just around the corner.

As celebrating the festive day with your friends and colleagues wasn’t really possible last year as we faced so many restrictions due to Covid-19, we’re gearing up to wear our jazzy jumpers in aid or Save The Children in 2021.

When is Christmas Jumper Day?

Christmas Jumper Day takes place on a Friday in December every year and this year it will be on Friday, December 10th.

You can register to receive a free fundraising pack for the event here.

Why does Christmas Jumper Day take place every year?

Christmas Jumper Day is an event organised by children’s rights charity Save The Children. It first took place in 2012 and has been running every year since.

Adults taking place are asked to donate a minimum of £2 to the charity, while schools, nurseries and youth groups ask for a donation of £1 from participants.

How do I donate to Save The Children?

Often workplaces will send a collection around the office to make it easier for you to donate or create a fundraising page, but if you’re a freelancer, a company owner, or simply want to donate independently, you can call the Save the Children Supporter Care team on 020 7012 6400 or create your own fundraising page online for the event.

Where can I find a decent Christmas jumper?

You don’t have to wear a tacky or throwaway knit for the event.

It’s best to find a jumper that will last you throughout the season and for years to come, so ditch the novelty sweaters for something long-lasting.

Here’s our edit of chic knits to give you some inspiration.
