I know it’s a bit late but what is the best Christmas present in the world?
 A broken drum, you just can't beat it!

 

With that cheesy joke out the way! Last year on December 15th staff throughout RSVP took part in Christmas Jumper Day to raise funds for save the children.

The annual event sees people across the country turn up to work in their best or favourite festive knitwear! The day has been championed by Save the Children as an opportunity for everyone to get together in festive gear and donate to help save children’s lives around the world.

On Friday 15th of December we held Christmas jumper day as a fundraiser to raise money for save the children and we raised, drumroll please… £87.00!!

By us taking part in Christmas jumper day it means that we will be helping give the world’s children a brighter future. Money raised by the teams in RSVP will be used to help children in a number of different ways and no matter how much you donated whether it was £1 or £10 on the day here is a list few things that your money will go towards.

  • £1 helping to pay for oral rehydration salts to help provide life-saving treatment to 16 children sick with diarrhoea
  • £2 helping to pay for winter shoes for a young child in Afghanistan
  • £5 helping to pay for educational toys to help children in the UK learn through playing
  • £10 helping to pay for pre-school learning in the Philippines
