Don a fun sweater to help raise vital funds for charity...

Christmas Jumper Day will be take place on 16 December 2016 and we can’t wait for the big day.  Here we are having a little practice run in the office.

Christmas Jumper day 2015

The money raised last year was bigger than ever as the government agreed to match every pound that was donated.

Here at Woman’s Weekly we like to do our bit for charity by wearing a festive knit for the day and making a donation – the suggested amount is £2 per adult, and £1 for a child.

If you want to get involved with Christmas Jumper Day 2015 and donate to Save The Children, Make-A-Wish UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, just click here to head over to their website for all the details.

To get you in the festive spirit we couldn’t help but share a couple of lovely pictures of the Woman’s Weekly team supporting Christmas Jumper Day over the years.

Here are a few of the team wearing jumpers all taken from Sue Stratford’s Merry Christmas Sweaters book in 2014. What a happy bunch!

In 2014 our lovely Technical Knitting Editor, Tina, wore a glowing Christmas Jumper that she accessorised with some festive red fairy lights!
