December is a time of year when people start wrapping up, wrapping up their final projects for the year and wrapping up against the ensuing cold weather. However, December is also a time for giving and sharing as people celebrate Christmas, and other similarly festive holidays for the season. With this generous spirit in mind, at this time Save the Children hold their annual festive fundraising event, Christmas Jumper Day.

Save the Children is an international NGO, established in the UK, promoting children’s rights and providing relief and support to children in developing countries across the globe. Next April will mark the charity’s 100th birthday. Every year since its inception, Save the Children have helped countless children around the world grow up safe and healthy, protecting them from abuse and danger, and defending their right to an education with great passion and fervour.

 

Since 2012 Save the Children have run an annual Christmas Jumper Day. Tapping into the season of goodwill, this day encourages people on a specifically chosen Friday in mid-December to don their most extravagant novelty festive knitwear and make a donation to the charity. The event is nationwide and schools and businesses everywhere particularly get into the spirit, organising fundraising events all in the aid of helping the less fortunate.

 

RSVP is of course no exception and our staff showed off their Christmas cheer in an extravaganza of beautiful and beautifully ugly sweaters!
