This year, Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday 15th December ’17. Millions of people up and down the country; colleagues, school children and friends will be adorning a festive knit so that they can help the charity do whatever it takes to make sure the world’s forgotten children get the chance to have a brighter future.
The fundraising idea began back in 2012 and has since seen millions of people join in. It has since become a quintessential British Christmas time tradition. We will, as previous years, be donning our festive jumpers. The children will go to school and I to work in our tackiest jumper. But not forgetting to donate £2 each to the charity here

Companies such as; Selfish Mother, WHSmith, Ellas Kitchen, Arsenal FC, Kurt Geiger and Ikea have all jumped on board and are offering to give donations from the sales of certain products.
