Festive Fortnight | Christmas Jumper Day!

Christmas isn’t all about the gifts and over indulgence! If anything it’s an amazing time to support a charity and this year there are so many ways to get involved in giving something back. My firm favourite is definitely Christmas jumper day and with all the crazy novelty jumpers all over the high street in the UK there is no excuse not to get involved and donate.

As always designers love getting on the charitable bandwagon and they’ve commissioned some rather snazzy Christmas jumpers which are going on auction for people to win. But unlike most fundraising auctions the prize doesn’t go to the highest bigger, oh no…whoever texts in the lowest bid in pence will win the designer jumper they bid for! And there are some pretty big names tacked onto this, including Burberry, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith. 
If you fancy bidding check out the website. If you want a gander at the jumpers themselves they’re on display in Westfield in London until 30th December. Or just donate your £1 tomorrow and don those Christmas jumpers for charity!
