Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day returned to Bath this Friday 10 December as local people wore their favourite Yuletide woolly knits to raise vital funds for the charity.
Everyone was encouraged to show off their best (and indeed worst) Christmas Jumpers at their school or workplace and donate £2 to the much-loved charity.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris joined in the festive fun as he visited the Save the Children shop in Bath.
This year Save the Children has helped children living in some of the poorest and most war-torn parts of the world. This includes providing education to primary-aged boys and girls Afghanistan, emergency food in Myanmar and water purification tablets in Yemen. Meanwhile in the UK Save the Children’s Emergency Grant has helped families worst affected by the pandemic.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Whether you chose a penguin pullover, Santa sweater, jingle bells jersey or North Pole knit, Christmas Jumper day is all in a great cause. I ho-ho-hope everyone had an amazing time wearing their winter woolies. Doing our own bit in Bath can make a big difference to children’s lives at home and abroad.”
