Volunteer opportunity description

Volunteer Promoters help us spread the word and get people signed up to Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day! We need you to use your local knowledge to help us ensure that Christmas Jumper Day is a fantastic success in your area. We have opportunities all around the country!

On Friday 15th December we will be calling on wooly-lovers from around the country to get together in their favourite festive knitwear and donate £2 for adults, £1 for children, to help save children’s lives.

Please register your interest via the APPLY link above.


Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is a chance for people to show off their silliest side and will help raise vital funds to save children’s lives. This is where you come in...
