When is Christmas Jumper Day?

The annual Christmas Jumper Day fundraising campaign will take place on Friday, December 15.

What is Christmas Jumper Day?

On a specific Friday in December every year, people are encouraged to make the world better with a sweater and raise funds for Save the Children by wearing a Christmas jumper and making a minimum donation of £1

The fundraising even first launched in 2012 and has seen many charitable children and adults donning their favourite festive knitwear for the occasion.

There are no rules for Christmas jumpers - the more festive the better, with even jumpers that light up fair game.
