Day Four – Christmas Jumper Day, 7 December 2023
#UKCharityWeek’s #ChristmasJumperDay is a beacon of festive cheer with a philanthropic twist. This joyous occasion encourages individuals to don their most dazzling, whimsical sweaters, giving an opportunity to make a meaningful impact by supporting UK Charity Week Official Partner Charity, Save the Children, or a charity of your choosing. Get ready to embrace the magic of the season and spread warmth beyond the cosy confines of holiday knitwear.
What is Christmas Jumper Day?
The day is an official part of UK Charity Week’s daily themes, Christmas Jumper Day is Save the Children’s annual event that raises money for the children who need it most. Every December, millions of people across the United Kingdom (and beyond!) put on a festive knit at their workplace, school or with friends and make a donation to help give children the magical future they deserve.
Christmas Jumper Day has raised over £35 million for children in the UK and around the world!
In 2022, thanks to all the amazing people who took part in Christmas Jumper Day:
- You raised a total of £5 million for children, including £2 million of match funding from the UK government
- Over 2 million school children and 24,000 workplaces took part in Christmas Jumper Day last year
