An excellent cause for which participants are asked to wear a Christmas Jumper for the day and donate £2 to Save The Children. Will you be taking part? I will post a picture of my Christmas Jumper on the day. It would be good if others did to.

    Whilst anything that raises money for a good cause is only to be applauded we have made our donations for this Christmas one to the Salvation Army and the other to our local food bank, and we have brought some gloves and hats to give to any rough sleepers we come across in the cold weather.

    I haven't got a Christmas jumper. Been trying to get one but they’re always too small, or I’m always too big...whichever. ☹️

    If everything's coming up roses it's time to call in a gardener

    I despise Christmas jumpers and steer clear of all such days. However, I do have these should anyone be foolish enough to demand I wear one. 

    Needs to be borne in mind that one is of course from Father Ted.

        I don't own a Christmas jumper and won't be buying one. I don't send Christmas cards to anyone instead I give money to a charity of my choosing.

    I don’t own a Christmas jumper and won’t be buying one, I’m not a fan of them. I always donate to Salvation Army because they are always close to my heart.

    Hi, I have a son in secondary school, Year 7 and in his primary school they always collected money previously. My tips are : instead  buying jumper you can simply decorate your old one or instead jumper just simply donate like some people mentioned. Otherwise you can buy from Save the Child website book about the funder Eglantyne Jebb. I am sure you can support this way as well. Especially if you book enthusiast. 😊
