Christmas Jumper Day at Mires Beck
Christmas Jumper Day is about raising money to help 'Save the Children'. This is for a cause that meets children's needs, such as food, education and home life.
Did you know, around the world, millions of children aren't able, or are forced not to, go to school, meaning they miss out on life-changing opportunities.
Nearly 1/4 of children in the world today suffer permanent damage to their minds and bodies due to lack of nutrition, usually because of lack of breastfeeding practices and families are unable to afford food. Climate change is also increasing the frequency of droughts and lack of food.
Newborn death rates are still quite high due to malnutrition challenges. 5.9m children die annually, many from illnesses such as diarrhoea and pneumonia.
