Taking silliness very seriously – Christmas Jumper Day 2016

christmas-jumperOn Thursday 15th December my colleagues and I at Luto will be putting on our warmest, wackiest and most wonderful festive woollies to raise money for this year’s Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day appeal.

Silliness is set to sweep the nation as millions of people up and down the country donate £2 to sport a festive sweater for the day. From technicolour festive knits festooned with reindeer antlers to balancing baubles, the best bit is that all this silliness has a serious purpose.

All of the money raised through this wacky woolly-wearing could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help buy nutritious food for their entire family or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again. It’s a very silly way to solve some very serious problems!

I am known in the office as ‘The Grinch’ due to my dislike of the Christmas festivities, but even I will be donning a Christmas themed jumper and donating £2 in support of this worthy cause.

Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is fun, easy to organise and everyone can be part of it. To find out more and sign up, visit www.christmasjumperday.org
