This Christmas we’re working with Save The Children to ‘make the world better with a sweater’ and help disadvantaged children living in the UK.

Save the Children

We’re hoping to raise lots for the charity this Christmas – and by picking up one of our fantastically festive jumpers you could help give children living in poverty in the UK the chance to fulfil their potential.

There are loads of fab designs available in store and online for the whole family. Prices start from just £6 – with a donation from each sale going straight to Save the Children. Plus, we’ll be adding even more to the range throughout November and December so be sure to keep an eye out!

It’s part of our campaign to spread a little warmth this Christmas where we’ll be hosting loads of fun activities in store to raise funds for charity – including bucket collections for Save the Children on Friday 5th December. You can also join us in store on Friday 12th December to help us celebrate Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day!

Don’t forget to pick up your very own Christmas jumper in store or online at George.com.
