Christmas jumper day

This Friday (11th December) is Christmas jumper day in the UK! People wear Christmas jumpers to work and to school – the cheesier* the better – not only to celebrate the festive season but also for charity. People give a donation of £2 and many companies and schools take part in fundraising activities. Do you donate to charity at Christmas?

I always donate food to the food bank in winter.
