Save the Children’s seventh annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place today (Friday) and we want to see your jumpers!

Flashing, festive knits will be sweeping the nation once again with schools, offices, homes, pigs, celebrities and football teams ditching their day-to-day dress and donning their daftest, most wonderful woollies for the annual fundraiser.

To get involved register at christmasjumperday.org, wear a woolly today, December 14, and donate £2 to Save the Children.

So, if you're putting on your festive jumper on this morning, send us a photo via our Facebook page or Twitter.

THREE LITTLE PHILANTHRO-PIGS

Three miniature pigs from Kew Little Pigs have modelled their favourite festive knitwear to help make the world better with a sweater. Accessorised with bauble tinsel and miniature Santa hats, the pigs posed up a storm to promote the festive fundraiser. In celebration of the year of the pig in 2019, Kew Little Pigs have announced that 20% of each hour-long visit will be donated to Save the Children, from Christmas Jumper Day onwards.
