Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children

Posted by: sara-jane

Colleagues at North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership are set to do their bit, to make the world better with a sweater this Christmas Jumper Day.

On Friday 14 December colleagues at North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership will be wearing their brightest, most fabulous Christmas Jumpers to raise money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Save the Children are hoping that this fantastic fundraiser which last year raised over £4 million for vulnerable children around the world, will be bigger and sillier than ever before as schools, homes and offices across the country ditch their day-to-day dress and don their daftest, most wonderful woollies for the seventh Christmas Jumper Day.

Officers who are carrying out inspections in North Yorkshire and office based staff at Easingwold will all be taking part in this very worthwhile event.

Michelle Lanaghan Development Manager at North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership said “The whole team have embraced the Christmas Jumper day and look fabulous!  Not only is this a fun and festive day for our staff but a great charity for us to support”.

Sarah Button-Stephens Christmas Jumper Day Campaign Manager said “We’re so grateful for each and every person that takes part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and can’t thank North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership enough for their fundraising efforts!  Just £2 of what they have raised could pay for antibiotics for five children suffering from pneumonia, one of the biggest killers of vulnerable children.  With just small donations like these and help from each one of you, we can stand by children’s side and give them the chance to be children again.”
