Team Refresh PR joins in with Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children



Friday was National Christmas Jumper Day.  Traditionally this is a day which kick-starts the Christmas festivities for many who don their colourful, fluffy, sequinned, sparkly sweaters in order to raise money for Save the Children.

 

Here at Refresh PR, we think that it is important to recognise the work that Save the Children does across the world, from providing aid to disaster victims to supporting children who come from impoverished families here in the UK.

 

For every £1 raised for Save the Children UK on Christmas Jumper Day, 88p goes to benefit children directly and 11p to help raise the next pound, whilst 1p goes on governance and other costs.

 

Refresh PR raised £40 over the course of the day, which will buy care packs like hygiene kits for children in crisis around the world, or could also buy safe home-birth kits for women.

 

Our Christmas Jumper Day was jam-packed with fun activities for us all to take part in. From galvanising support on social media for our own Christmas jumpers through to games such as guessing what’s on Jon Snow’s chest, we managed to rope in people from businesses across Manchester’s Northern Quarter to take part and dig deep.

 

Fliss won our social media competition and took home a bottle of bubbly for the weekend - and just so we don’t forget the winning jumper any time soon, here she is modelling it alongside the rest of the team on Twitter and YouTube.

 

Despite the fun we had, we still want to remember what this is all about.  We’d really appreciate it if you could visit www.savethechildren.org.uk and donate a couple of pounds to this wonderful cause.
