Save the Children are doing something fantastic for Christmas; not only are they trying to make the world better as always, they are getting more and more people to don their Christmas jumpers and make a right royal fool of themselves…can’t be a bad thing, right? Even Bruno from Strictly is getting in on the act…

Christmas Jumper Day: Bruno

What is Christmas Jumper Day (Friday 13th December)?

All you need to do is wear your Christmas Jumper for the day, and donate £1 or more to the Save the Children cause at www.christmasjumperday.org Jumpers are available if you don’t have your own, and most importantly £25 for every jumper in the Save the Children range at John Lewis goes to the charity as well.

What’s this about World Records?

Even better than this though, Save the Children are teaming up with Arlene Philips to try and break a world record for the most people in Christmas Jumpers all gathered together in the same place:

Help Save the Children to make history by donning your Christmas jumper and joining them at Westfield London on Friday 13th December – sign up to take part at www.christmasjumperday.org/worldrecord and don’t forget to donate your £1 to Save the Children at www.christmasjumperday.orgOnly pre-registered participants will be given access to the area on the day. Once registered you will receive a confirmation email with all the necessary details required to take part on the day.” 

I know it is late in the day, but why not pop along and check it out.
