What is Christmas Jumper Day?

Since 2012, Christmas Jumper Day has been a fun way for everyone in the community to raise money for Save The Children. Simply put on your jazziest Christmas jumper, and your workplace, school, or community can pledge to raise funds with each jumper worn for the occasion. You can organise yourself by signing up to take part here and donate to a wonderful cause.

It's a fantastic way to get in the festive spirit ahead of Christmas, give your wackiest jumper an airing, and raise money to help protect children around the world.
