Father Christmas, snowmen, snowflakes, robins, Christmas trees, and even a festive dachshund came to work today – all in aid of charity.
At Chrisbeon we aim to support our community in as many ways as we can, but we also like to support communities nationally and internationally – and what better way to enter into the Christmas season than by donning some wonderful woolly jumpers in aid of Save the Children.
The Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day has been growing in popularity in recent years as more and more organisations take part. Everyone and anyone does their bit including many well-known faces.
Funds raised from the national charity drive all go towards helping improve the lives of children around the world. Projects supported have included giving youngsters access to books and learning in Rwanda, funding drugs to fight Pneumonia in Kenya, and helping Mexican families recover from devastating floods.
For just £2 each we invited staff to come to work in their fancy festive finery, and were delighted that so many chose to support the initiative. It seems for some, the wackier the jumper the better.
It’s a small thing for us to do, and we have a lot of laughs when we’re doing it, but it can make an enormous difference to children and families around the world.
