In its third year, and the biggest yet, Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day is bringing together supporters and campaigners to be part of its woolly revolution to 'make the world better with a sweater’. 

Sharon, who has posed along with her Parliamentary team in all three years, said: "What better way to support a good cause than to get into the festive spirit and don a Christmas jumper?

“I know there’ll be lots of individuals and workplaces across Sunderland getting involved in Christmas Jumper Day this year, and I hope that people give generously to support the vital work that Save the Children are doing here in the UK and around the world.”

For adults the suggested donation is £2 and  for school children it’s £1, and to recognise this generous support, the government will double all money raised - matching every pound donated. To donate via text message, please text JUMPER to 70050 to donate £2 straight to Save the Children.
