EAG Helps Save The Children's Christmas Jumper Day 2016

On Friday 16th December, staff at Essex Auto Group will be putting on their warm and wonderful festive woollies to raise money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Silliness is set to sweep the nation as millions of people in schools, offices and homes up and down the country donate £2 to sport a festive sweater for the day. From technicolour festive knits festooned with reindeer antlers to balancing baubles, the best bit is that all this silliness has a serious purpose.

All money raised through this wacky woolly-wearing could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help buy nutritious food for their entire family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again. It’s a very silly way to solve some very serious problems!

Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day has knitted together charity, cheesy pullovers and warm, fuzzy fundraising for 5 years now and – thanks to generous jumper-wearers all over the UK – they've raised millions of pounds. Our Call Centre and Marketing team at Essex Auto Group will take part by wearing their woolly jumpers to work too!
