Save the Children’s eighth annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday (December 13) - and staff at Dragons Rugby will be donning their favourite Santa sweater in support of the annual Save the Children fundraiser and are encouraging supporters to do the same at tonight's game (kick off 8pm).
Since its launch in 2012, Christmas Jumper Day has raised a whopping £21million to help the charity build a better future for children in Wales and around the world.
Mike Sage, Dragons Community manager said: “Staff at Dragons will be wearing their Christmas jumpers at the big game against Worcester Warriors tonight, so join us by dusting off your Ho Ho Santa and show your Tinsel Elf and help make the world better in your sweaters.”
Louise Davies, Head of Save the Children in Wales added: “During our centenary year this is a fantastic way to support children here in Wales and around the world.
"Thank you so much to Dragons for helping to make sure every child, no matter where they are in the world, has essentials like healthcare, education, protection, and food and water. Every jumper really can save lives. Together, we can support children to learn, grow and become who they want to be, because they are the future.”
It’s the most magical time of year – fairy lights and snowmen, baubles and Christmas trees. And on 13 December you’ll see them all – on our jumpers.
Save the Children is expecting over 5 million people across the UK to take part in the biggest, silliest Christmas Jumper Day yet – and donate £2 a jumper to help children in desperate need around the world.
