Party Ingredients Wishing Everyone Happy Christmas Jumper Day!

This year we joined hundreds of others up and down the country taking part to Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

IDEA

Wear a Christmas jumper to work and donate a little for charity (and a little more if you forgot to wear your finest knitwear!)

HOW WE DID IT

We got everyone together to sing a Christmas carol, see each others’ jumpers and collected a few pounds from each participant. As an incentive, we ran a competition with four categories, Best Homemade (winner: Chris in the bright blue snowman jumper), Best Cuddly (Suraj in a traditional style Christmas jumper pattern), Best Festive (Mike with a red reindeer jumper combined with a santa hat) and Best Innovative (Amelie who decorated her jumper with Christmas lights, wrapping paper cuttings and tinsel). Winners received Christmas stockings with seasonal treats and lottery tickets.

RESULT

Quite a bowlful of money and better still, the MD promised to double the amount raised. We will be sending the cheque to Save the Children shortly.
