Christmas Jumper Day 2014

Christmas knitwear has come in from the cold. Rescued from the icy wastelands of taste and fashion, it is assured of a welcome with the return of Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 12th December 2014.

The charity Save The Children would like as many people as possible to wear a Christmas jumper to work or to school for suggested donations of £2 for adults and £1 for children. Their website has more info and additional suggestions for fundraising (http://jumpers.savethechildren.org.uk/about/faqs).
