Jane Hutt, Vale of Glamorgan AM, has supported Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday December 16th by donning their favourite festive knit.
Save the Children is calling on everyone in Wales to wear a woolly to raise money for its life-saving work.
The charity is asking for a £2 donation from all who take part in its new Christmas Jumper Day and hopes people across Wales will join in the festive fun, whilst helping vulnerable children across the world.
Jane has joined with thousands of others by wearing their Christmas jumper to promote the day.
Jane said: “Everyone can take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on 16th December.
By sticking on a silly sweater, signing up and donating £2 to Save the Children you’ll be saving children’s lives, and helping make sure the world’s forgotten children get the chance to have a brighter future. It’s a fun way to help solve some very serious problems!”
Hundreds of Schools and workplaces across Wales have already signed up to take part and pictures can be shared on Twitter with #xmasjumperday hashtag and on facebook.com/savethechildrenuk.
All money raised through Christmas Jumper Day 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 could also help us bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support, and give children experiencing poverty in Wales a better future.
