On 15th December pupils at St. Laurence Junior Academy, Ramsgate will be ditching their usual school uniform and donning their daftest, most wonderful woollies to raise money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

It’s the most magical time of year – fairy lights and snowmen, baubles and Christmas trees. And on 15th December you’ll see them all – on our jumpers. Save the Children is expecting over 5 million people across the UK to take part in the biggest, silliest Christmas Jumper Day yet – and donate money to help children in desperate need in the UK and around the world.

At St. Laurence, the children will be coming into school with their festive jumpers and even the staff are joining in with a Christmas Jumper competition to see who can design/make/create the most original jumper!

And every jumper really can help saves lives. The money raised could help give a child, living in a refugee camp, enough clothes to keep them warm through winter. It could help buy nutritious food and safe drinking water for a family, or set up a safe space for children caught up is disaster – giving them the chance to be children again.

All the money raised will go to Save the Children, helping to make sure every child, no matter where they are in the world, has essentials like healthcare, education, protection, and food and water.

To get involved simply get Christmassy colleagues and merry mates together on 15th December, pop on your pullovers and donate. Sign up now at christmasjumperday.org for your free fundraising pack.
