Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day

07 Nov, 2014

We've joined the woolly revolution and donned our best Christmas jumpers on Friday 12th December to help raise much needed funds for Save the Children. 

Here's our photo album on Facebook showing off our festive knits! Christmas Jumper Day 2014

Please join us to 'Make the world better with a sweater' by texting TEAMFINEART to 70050 to donate £2. And to double the jumper joy, every pound you give will be matched by the UK government this Christmas making an even bigger difference for children. 

Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day is now in its third year and, thanks to fantastic supporters popping on their pullovers up and down the nation, have raised more than £1.6 million to date.

* The money you raise will help save lives. Just £2 could pay for potentially life-saving antibiotics to treat three babies with infections.

Save The Children

Nearly 1 in 3 children in England live in poverty. Given that England's economy is one of the biggest in the world, the figures are astounding.

* In the UK Save the Children  helps children in poverty by providing families on low incomes with household essentials, like a child's bed, a family cooker or educational books and toys. 30,000 UK families have been helped so far. 

* Save the Children teams are on the ground in West Africa responding to the Ebola outbreak which has killed more than 5,000 people so far in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. They are running treatment centres for patients, supporting children and raising awareness of how to prevent infection. But they need our support to stop this deadly epidemic spreading.

* Save the Children helped over 15.4 million children worldwide in 2013 

Forced into sex work. Recruited into armies. Shut away in institutions. Save the Children aim to ensure vulnerable children are protected, wherever they are.
