Christmas Jumper Day

Bring festive cheer to the work place and help support your local Hospice!

The official Christmas Jumper Day takes place on Thursday 7 December 2023 but you can hold it on any day that suits you and your organisation.

It’s super simple to take part… 

  • Pick a day to get together in your festive knitwear
  • Choose a way to fundraise – you could bring in £2 for wearing your Christmassy jumper (you could even hold a ‘best dressed’ competition), hold a Christmas bake sale, or Christmas raffle*. 
  • Share plenty of pics on social media (optional, but appreciated!) and tag @WillenHospice
  • Send in your fantastic funds
  • Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done!

As a local charity, our Corporate fundraising team can be on hand to support you with your fundraising. They can print of banners, supply buckets and help with ideas! Let us know you’re getting involved: 

*If you’re holding a raffle, you do not need a licence if the tickets are only being sold during the event. If you’re selling tickets in advance then it gets more complicated. Please read the ‘Running a Lottery’ leaflet, and if you need further advice please check the latest regulations with the Gambling Commission at
