Top tips for Christmas Jumper Day

You're not just wearing a jumper - you're becoming a superhero and joining the awesome-est community ever! And if you've already fundraised, you can pay in right now.

Whether you're joining as a school group, with colleagues or with friends, there's so many ways to get the whole team excited for Christmas Jumper Day!

We've got some magical top tips for you:

  • Tinsel the Teacher
    You (and the whole class) will love this. Run a crafting session where the kids customise two magical jumpers for the Headteacher, get parents to donate to their favourite and the Headteacher has to wear it ... ALL DAY!
  • Bake Sale Extravaganza
    Cast a spell with cakes! Ask kids and parents to get mixing and make some tasty cakes for a bake sale – if they make them look magical that’s even better. 
  • Fun for Everyone
    It’s super-important to get every kid involved. Our amazing partner Poverty Proofing have got some brilliant top tips to show you how!

  • Create Spell-binding Sweaters
    You don't need to buy a new jumper. Challenge your team to turn their old sweaters into the most mesmerising Christmas jumper ever, and then get the rest of your colleagues to donate to their favourite design!
  • Double Your Money 
    Some awesome bosses have promised to give the same amount as you collect, so you can double your donation. How cool is that? Make sure you ask your work if they’ll match your total before you send your donations.
  • Mute button challenge
    Super-simple: every time someone talks in the Zoom call but forgets to unmute themselves, they have to donate £2!
