Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day at Progress Lifeline

Christmas Jumper Day

On Thursday 8th December, Progress Lifeline raised vital funds for Save the Children's 11th annual Christmas Jumper Day.

By pulling on our Christmassy knits and donating, we raised £51 for the charity. Progress Lifeline is part of Progress Housing Group, who will match the amount we raised as part of their Charity Fund, taking our total to £102 To make things even better, the UK government has promised to double all donations raised, taking our grand total to £204!

What is Christmas Jumper Day?

Christmas Jumper Day is Save the Children's annual event which raises money for children in the UK and across the world. Every December, millions of people across the United Kingdom (and beyond!) put on a festive outfit at their workplace, school or with friends and make a donation to help give children the magical future they deserve.

How will the funds raised by Progress Lifeline benefit children across the world?

We'll help mums-to-be, new mums, tiny babies and bigger kids get the food and medicine they need to be strong and healthy. 100% of match funding from the UK government will go directly towards supporting Save the Children’s project in Kenya, which will increase the quality and availability of essential maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition services in Mandera and Turkana counties, Kenya.

Public donations raised through Christmas Jumper Day will go towards supporting Save the Children’s vital work in the UK and around the world, enabling us to make lasting change for the children who need it most.

A big thank you to all of our wonderful employees who took part in the day!
