11 Days of Jumpers - think you can take the heat? Wear your jumper for 11 days in a row - no matter where you are

Jumping jumper - get sponsored to do a challenge with a twist. You could run 10k in a jumper, cycle to the next town and back, or star jump in a jumper for as long as you can!

Most jumpers - how many jumpers can you put on in 30 seconds? Challenge yourself and your buddies (just make sure you have a glass of water nearby - all those jumpers can get super warm!)

Be great , decorate! - Tinsel up an ordinary pullover, go all out with sequins and snowmen, or even knit your own.

Staying Safe

  2. If you're feeling unwell, don't take part in the event and instead follow government guidance on immediate self-isolation

  3. Use face coverings like masks to protect yourself and others
  4. Wash your hands regularly, using soap and water or with a hand sanitiser (if soap and water aren't available)

  5. Keep at least a 2m distance from other people
