Charity supporters are donning their Christmas jumpers today for Save the Children, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to give children a better future.
Save the Children say that by donating just £2 each on Christmas jumper day “you’ll be giving children the chance to a better future”.
The scheme has been running since 2012 and celebrity backing from the likes of Fearne Cotton, Love Island winners Danni Dyer and Jack Fincham and Ruth Langford and Eammon Holmes.
The event is now a modern tradition adopted by offices, schools and nurseries across Suffolk, some are supporting Save the Children, while others have chosen to support St Elizabeth Hospice’s Woolly Pully week and others are raising funds for local charity GeeWizz.
