On the 11th December an array of festive colour filled the practice as we supported Christmas Jumper Day 2020.
With Coronavirus continuing to dominate our lives and our offices (which are continuing to operate as close to normal as possible whilst respecting guidelines), staff again took part in supporting the annual Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children. The practice has supported this event for many years and reading some of the stories from the Save the Children site helps explain why this year has been particularly important. Here is one:
“When the virus came, things got hard for their family – and not just because Jensen and Niamh had to stay away from their friends. “My wages have been cut,” says their mum Charlie, who works at a nursery.
Save the Children made it a bit easier. They helped Charlie get supermarket vouchers, and crafty learning packs, so they’d be ready to return to school.
“That keeps them entertained cos they really like making things,” says Charlie. One of Jensen’s favourite things to make is stories. Want to hear his newest?:
“It was about a clown that dropped a cupcake down a drainpipe, and then a kangaroo came and stuck its nose down it, so it could get the cupcake out.”
The events of this year have, perhaps, increased awareness of the needs of others and we are delighted that so many of our staff brightened up the day with their Christmas jumpers, whilst making a donation to this cause.
Want to donate to the event ?
We have set up a JustGiving page where you can donate to Save the Children.
Just £2 could pay for a bottle of hand sanitiser to help fight coronavirus in a Save the Children medical clinic, whilst £20 could pay for a back-to-school kit for a child in Indonesia. Simply click the donate button above to give your £2 (or more if you’re feeling generous…) and help us reach our team target.
