When is Christmas Jumper Day 2023?

Christmas Jumper Day will take place on Thursday, December 7 and anyone can take part.

All you need to do is wear a Christmas jumper and donate £2 (or £1 for children) to Save the Children.

This year the charity is urging the public to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day as sustainably as possible, by re-using, re-cycling and shopping more consciously.

Former This Morning host Willoughby, 42, said: “Christmas Jumper Day is a really fabulous way of raising lots of money for Save the Children and it’s so easy to get involved!

“You don’t even need a new jumper to take part, you can dig out an old knit that you’ve had for years or go to a charity shop and find a cool vintage one.”
