Christmas Jumper Swaps

It’s insane that one in four Christmas jumpers are only worn once, and are often binned without anyone else ever having worn them! So we’re doing something little to try and change that a bit.

Come along to one of our Christmas jumper swap events in the next few weeks, or if you’d like to organise your own event at school, work or in your neighbourhood, feel free to copy what we’re doing, or check out Final Straw Solent‘s template poster and letter to parents for a school swap.

And if you’d like to make a temporary Christmas jumper, bring along a jumper to the Southsea library event on the 30th, and some friendly volunteers will be on hand to give you some inspiration for temporary decoration.

Finally, please do spread the word! If you’ve made your own, are rewearing a Christmas jumper, or have got a ‘new-to-you’ jumper, share photos and tag it with #ChristmasJumperSwap so we can all be inspired and share the joy.
