This year, Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday, December 16 with the silliness set to sweep the nation as schools, homes and offices across the country ditching their day-to-day dress for as daft as they dare for Save the Children.

From technicolour festive knits festooned with reindeer antlers, turning up to date night dressed like a figgy pudding and spending hours in front of the mirror trying to balance their baubles, we’re expecting everyone to take their silliness very seriously this Christmas Jumper Day!

By sticking on a daft sweater, signing up and donating £2 to Save the Children at, you’ll be saving children’s lives, and helping the charity do whatever it takes to make sure the world’s forgotten children get the chance to have a brighter future.

All money raised through your woolly-wearing could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help us buy nutritious food for their entire family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again.

It could also help us bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support. All this, just by wearing a daft jumper – it’s a very silly way to solve some very serious problems!
