St Elizabeth Hospice is urging friends, colleagues and classmates to go wacky in wool this December.
The charity is holding its first ever Christmas Jumper Week between on Monday 14th and Friday 18th December and is asking local businesses, schools and groups to don their craziest knit and do their bit for their local hospice.
Organisations choose a day during the week and on their nominated Christmas Jumper Day, everyone has to wear their silliest sweater and donate £2 to St Elizabeth Hospice.
Felicity Rook, St Elizabeth Hospice’s head of fundraising, said, “Christmas jumpers have become such a popular phenomenon in recent years, nearly everybody has a festive top, and Christmas Jumper Week is a great excuse to get yours out and wear it to work, school or wherever.
“Holding a Christmas Jumper Day is sure to get you in the festive spirit in the run up to Christmas and is an easy and fun way to raise vital funds for your local hospice and help ensure nobody has to face their illness alone this Christmas.”
Throughout the week the hospice will be offering prizes for the best, craziest and most outrageous jumpers through their Facebook and Twitter pages, so if you want to get involved, make sure you like and follow the hospice’s social media channels for your chance to win some great giveaways.
