save-the-children-christmas-jumper-dayOn Friday 16th December, the P & I team took part in the Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. Everyone came dressed in their most festive jumpers with some of us decorating our own knitwear (see our pictures below!).

Every year, Save the Children hold their annual Christmas Jumper Day to raise money to save children’s lives and we were more than happy to get involved!

Laura and Nikki kindly made some Christmas themed cakes, cookies and gingerbread men to raise some extra money on the day. To continue the Christmas spirit and in an attempt to raise further funds, we held a guess the amount of chocolates in the jar during yesterday’s Secret Santa. James was very happy to win the jar of chocolates and kindly shared them with the whole office. In total, we managed to raise £105.20 from the donations made for wearing our jumpers, the bake sale and the guess the amount of chocolates.

Save the Children is an international charity promoting children’s rights and providing relief and support to children in developing countries across the world. The aim of the charity is to improve children’s lives through better health care and education, as well as providing emergency aid during natural disasters, wars and other conflicts.

The money we have raised will go towards providing essentials like food, education and healthcare to millions of children around the world. We are passionate about raising money for charities so keep an eye out on our website for upcoming charity fundraisers we will be involved in.

Paul Benfield, Managing Director of P & I commented:
