‘Tis the season for Christmas jumpers and Save the Children’s Annual Christmas Jumper Day! The Countrystyle teams fully embraced this year’s event to raise money for a fantastic cause. Across the two sites, the staff at both Lenham and Ridham donned their outstanding knitwear raising a fantastic £55.
Save the children work in over 100 countries, including the UK, helping children stay safe, healthy and in education. They lead the way on tackling big problems like pneumonia, hunger and protecting children in war, whilst ensuring each child’s unique needs are cared for.
Last year, the money raised from Christmas jumper day was put towards projects including:
- protecting children in humanitarian emergencies from disease/hunger
- tackling pneumonia, the biggest infectious killer of children
- fighting malnutrition, the underlying cause of one-third of child deaths
- feeding thousands of children at risk of starvation in Yemen
This year the project continues to work in affected areas, reaching 9.3 MILLION children in emergencies, 27.6m through health/nutrition work and aiming to meet a £1bn govt. pledge on vaccinations.
