Christmas Jumper Day Friday 11th December 2020

This year, as a school, we are once again taking part in the Christmas Jumper Day in support of Save The Children.  Millions of people across the UK and Ireland will be taking part in this day to celebrate being silly and getting into the festive spirit! On Friday 11th December, we would like you to come to school in your most Christmassy attire! It might be a lovely Christmas jumper, or maybe just a bit of tinsel, but we’d love it if you could make a £1 donation to Save The Children.

We’ve looked at the amazing work Save the Children do, in Crew. But just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s a reminder:

  • Here in the UK, they provide families with books and toys, who might otherwise be struggling. The pandemic this year will mean that eve more families may be facing this grim reality.
  • In parts of the globe where Covid-19 rips through communities because sanitation and health care is severely lacking, Save the Children can provide face masks for health workers and hand sanitiser to help slow the spread.
  • Save the Children can provide five children with antibiotics, that help fight malnutrition, using just £10.

Staff have kicked off the fundraising for Save the Children, with a socially-distanced Christmas market, on their Staff Day on Monday 30th November. They raised £338 pounds to help this fantastic cause!

So please come to school on Friday 11th December wearing something Christmassy and give a donation of £1- this small gesture could make a big difference to children most in need, around the world.
