A turkey, a reindeer and a lot of knitwear!
We joined thousands of people across the country for Christmas Jumper Day sporting our Christmas outfits for the day, donating £2 or more for the privilege. Christmas snacks were provided throughout the day, in return for a small donation. Over the entire day, we were pleased to raise a total of £200!
The money raised will go directly to local charity St. Peter & St. James’ Hospice, who we have chosen to support as our charity of the year and is a charity based in the local area that many of the staff feel particularly strongly about. The hospice receives just 14% of their funding from the government, and have to raise more than £2.6 million every year through fundraising events. That’s £7,200 every single day.
