Make the world better with a sweater…

We’re joining thousands of people across the UK to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day on 15 December, raising as much as possible for Save the Children.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Think fairy lights, baubles, snowmen, tinsel and Christmas trees. And we want it all…on a jumper! That’s right, it’s time to dig out your wonderful woollies, all for a great cause.

Where possible, we’d love every site, every teammate and every customer (plus friends, family and suppliers – the more, the merrier!) to help us convert those pullovers to pounds.* It’ll get you in the festive mood (if you’re not already blasting out those Crimbo classics!). Plus, donating just £2 to take part will help bring essential healthcare, education, protection and food to millions of children across the world who are missing out this Christmas.

So, here are our top tips for embracing all things Christmas Jumper Day:

  • The crazier the better! Bling your jumper out (why buy a new one when you can upgrade last year’s with some festive decs?!) and wear it with pride.
  • Sign up here to get your own fundraising pack from Save the Children (note: our Clarion pubs will already be receiving a pack in the post).
  • Print these posters and stick them up to raise awareness at your location.
  • Make big plans by turning Christmas Jumper Day into a bigger fundraising event or tying it in with one that’s already planned. We’re thinking a jumper ‘carol-oke’ or even a mini Christmas market.
  • Set a fundraising target and share your goal – if you share it, you’re 75% more likely to nail it!
  • Spread the cheer by sharing your pics on social media, using #marstons #christmasjumperday.
  • Remember to donate! However big or small, your donations will help save the lives of children all around the world.
  • For a quick donation of £5, text ‘TEAM4381’ to 70050.
  • Pay in the money your site raises, using Marston’s reference number (CJD170044615) – here’s how.

We want to hear about how you get on, too! Send us your pics and the amount you raise to The best-dressed teams will feature on our ‘wardrobe of fame’ later this month.

What are you waiting for? Let’s make the world better with a sweater!
