Celebrities pose in their Christmas jumpers to show their support for Save the Children

Written by Katy Pearson
A host of British celebrities are backing a new festive fundraising campaign for Save the Children.

Myleene Klass, Mark Wright, Erin O’Connor, Lisa Snowdon, Alison Steadman, Ashley Jensen, Lauren Laverne, Jon Snow, Ben Forster, Vicky McClure and VV Brown have all posed for photographs in the festive woollies they will be wearing on Christmas Jumper Day on December 14, to mark their support for the campaign.

People across the UK are being invited to take part in the age-old tradition of wearing a kitsch Christmas jumper on the day in exchange for a £1 donation, helping to ‘make the world better with a sweater.’

All money raised will help save the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children. In the world's poorest countries, more than 7 million children die every year from easily preventable causes like diarrhoea and malnutrition. Simple solutions, like vaccines and mosquito nets save lives – so by getting friends and colleagues to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper day on 14 December, you can help make a real difference.
