Get set for Christmas Jumper Day

The festive season is upon us – and so is Christmas Jumper Day!

Everything is a bit different in 2020, so it’s more important than ever to come together in celebration to spread the Christmas cheer whatever way you can.

As ever, Save the Children is encouraging everyone to come together on December 11 to don your best festive knit – the uglier and more garish the better, if you ask us – and do your bit for charity.

For the ninth year in a row, a Santa’s sleigh full of celebrities are proving they’re no Scrooge.

Peter Andre, best buds Chris Hughes and Kem Cetinay, Ed Balls, Alex Scott, Nicola Adams, Holly Willoughby and more are getting involved.

Covid-19 means more children are living in poverty and going hungry, so the organisation is calling on the public to help out by making, upcycling, borrowing or buying a second-hand jumper.

Everyone taking part is encouraged to donate £2 – or £1 for kids – to help Save the Children.

Boxer Nicola – currently seen testing her skills on the Strictly dancefloor – said: ‘I’ve always been a fan of Christmas Jumper Day – you just can’t help but smile when you see people getting into the festive spirit with a great Christmas jumper.

‘It’s such a fun way to help children around the world and it’s so easy – just donate £2 and you can really help change lives this Christmas.’

TV pundit and retired footballer Alex Scott admitted she’ll be missing the glitz and glamour of the BBC Latin and ballroom this year, but Christas Jumper Day is a fitting replacement.

She added: ‘I’ll be missing all the glittery fun of Strictly this year so will be adding extra sparkle to my Christmas jumper instead – and taking part in all the festive fun on Friday 11th will be a good substitute!’

Chris Hughes declared himself ‘the longstanding champion’ in his own family, and vowed to outdo himself for 2020.

‘Every year we have a family tradition where we try to outdo each other by wearing the most outrageous Christmas jumpers,’ he explained.

‘I’m obviously the longstanding champion and I’m hoping to mug everyone else off again this year. Everybody should join me this year and pop on a Christmas knit and donate £2.

‘The money goes to children all over the world to ensure they are protected, healthy and given the chance to learn.’

Rather than buying a new jumper Save the Children are encouraging everyone to dig out an old jumper and get crafty or head online to buy a pre-loved festive knit.

People can also order a donation bag online to donate old jumpers to be re-sold.

Fundraising packs are now downloadable and virtual fundraising tips and advice can be found at www.christmasjumperday.org.
