Modern Access and Blencowe Scaffolding are set to make the world better with a sweater this Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday 15th December, staff at Modern Access in Eastleigh, and both Blencowe Scaffolding depots (Salisbury and Basingstoke) will be donning their daftest, most wonderful woollies to raise money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
It’s the most magical time of year – fairy lights and snowmen, baubles and Christmas trees. And on 15 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.
Pat Blencowe, Managing Director of Blencowe Scaffolding said: “We’ve decided to take part in this years Christmas Jumper Day knowing that the money that we help raise improves the lives of vulnerable children. All the office staff in the 3 depots will be donning their festive jumpers to help raise money but we will also be asking those we work with to help us raise even more money on the day.”
And every jumper really can help saves lives. The money raised could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter. It could help buy nutritious food and safe drinking water for a family, or set up a safe space for children caught up is disaster – giving them the chance to be children again.
All the money raised will go to Save the Children, helping to make sure every child, no matter where they are in the world, has essentials like healthcare, education, protection, and food and water.
To get involved and donate with us, you can text your donation to 70050 using the code TEAM615256 to donate £5 to Save the Children.
