Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity is calling on caring supporters to pull on their best Christmas sweaters to do their bit in a festive knit on Friday 10th December for its annual Jolly Jumper Day.
Supporters and staff at the two hospitals will be wearing their best Christmas jumpers to spread festive cheer and raise vital funds to help patients and their families this yuletide – and the whole year round – and they want you to join them.
To take part, all you need to do is dust off your favourite Christmas pullover, join together with friends, family, schoolmates, or work colleagues, and make a suggested donation of £2.00 each to the hospitals. You could even add to the fun, by awarding prizes for the most fantastically festive and ho-ho-horrendous sweaters. Alternatively, if you don’t have a Christmas jumper, or your job prevents you from wearing one, why not try some festive socks or flashing antlers instead?
The frontline heroes at Birmingham Children’s and Birmingham Women’s Hospitals work their magic every single day, but it’s up to us to add the sparkle. By taking part in Jolly Jumper Day for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, supporters will help make this Christmas as magical as possible for young patients who are too poorly to be at home for the big day, and ensure they and their families can still make precious memories that will last a lifetime.
As one of only two dedicated women’s hospitals in the UK and with the largest single-site maternity unit in the country, delivering more than 8,200 babies a year, anyone who chooses to take part in Jolly Jumper Day for Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity will be supporting the 50,000 women, babies and families the hospital treats every year.
Miranda Williams, Head of Public Fundraising at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity, said:
Jolly Jumper Day is one of the easiest and most fun ways to get involved and support our patients and families this Christmas. We all have a festive sweater sitting in the wardrobe, so all you have to do is dust it off and donate whatever you can. Don’t worry if you can’t make Friday 10 December, you can wear your Jolly Jumper on a day to suit you, just make sure you tell us when you register your event.”
Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity is also hoping to see plenty of activity on social media on the day. Just post a selfie in your festive knit to your preferred platform using the hashtag #JollyJumperDay and join the trend.
