On Friday 11 December, Carlton Road Academy will be taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. We’re asking families to donate £1 or however much they can give, to help transform the futures of children in the UK and around the world. Save the Children make sure children are kept safe, healthy and learning, and change the future for good.
There’s no need to buy a new jumper. Children can come in non-uniform that day and can wear anything ‘Christmassy’ if they wish to. It doesn’t have to be a jumper! There are decorating templates online at christmasjumperday.org/schools-pack if you want to do this at home.
We have a Just Giving page to raise funds for Save the Children if you wish to donate to this very worthy cause.https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cjd200002601
Please note, JustGiving only accepts a minimum donation of £2. Therefore, if your donation is less than £2 you can donate via Save the Children’s website at: www.christmasjumperday.org
Please use our school’s reference number CJD20002601 on any donation made. The donation form will be live closer to the big day!
We’d really appreciate your support to make Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day a success – it’s a great cause, so together at school, we’ll be helping to create a brighter future for children, we can make the world better in our sparkly, silly sweaters!
