Christmas Jumper Day 2020

Festive Knitwear at the ready - Its Save The Children's Christmas Jumper Day

Friday December, 11th was the day to don your most outlandish seasonal knitwear in support of Save The Children.   Christmas Jumper Day is the annual occasion when people across the country head to work or school – or this year work from home – dressed in their most outrageous, garish jumper.   

As well as wearing the jumper you were asked to make a small £2 donation to Save The Children (or £1 if you are at school).

Here at Banbury FM we joined in and shared our fashion faux-pas with you during the day.

Save the Children launched Christmas Jumper Day in 2012.   It’s their annual charity drive in which people are encouraged to wear their whackiest, most outlandish Christmas jumper in the name of raising money for children across the world.   The charity saves of your donations and says: “They will be helping to give the world’s forgotten children the chance to have a brighter future”.

How to join in

There’s plenty of Christmas jumpers on sale in Banbury’s shops, but it doesn’t have to be a new one.   Many people decorate an existing jumper.

This year people are being encouraged to join in as a school group, work team or with their families.   Once you have signed up you’ll have access to all the fun ideas for Christmas Jumper Day 2020.   These include Christmas quiz ideas for Zoom, virtual bingo, an awesome online charity sweepstake and a virtual Christmas party!

If there are talented (or not-so-talented) singers in your team Virtual Christmas carolling for charity is a great way to raise money and have a laugh!

Sign-up now on the Save the Children Christmas Jumper website.

Remember, if you’re joining in please send a picture of you in your jumper to!   We’ll post pictures of the Banbury FM team suitably attired in their festive knitwear on the day.
