Christmas Jumper Day (7th December) is Save the Children’s annual event to help raise money for the charity’s work supporting children who need it most.

Every December, millions of people in Scotland and across the United Kingdom (and beyond!) put on a festive knit at their workplace, school or with friends and donate to Save the Children to help give children the magical future they deserve.

This year Martin Whitfield MSP is again backing the charity’s campaign and encouraging people across South Scotland to join in and help raise much-needed funds for children.

Martin Whitfield MSP said:

“I’m delighted to support Save the Children Scotland this #ChristmasJumperDay, helping children in Scotland and around the world get the future they deserve.

“This year is focused on sustainability so it’s time to get crafty and make the world better with a sweater! Please sign up and get involved now.”

Save the Children is encouraging everyone getting involved in this year’s Christmas Jumper Day to do so sustainably, either by re-using previous years’ jumpers or buying second hand.
