This year, Save the Children's annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday 16th December. As daft festive knits begin to sweep the nation, Arsenal's first team has taken part in its first ever squad photo in Christmas Jumpers with Arsène Wenger to support the campaign.
Arsenal players are so excited about the campaign that some of the world’s leading football players including Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka have donned a Christmas Jumper. And it’s not just the men who are wearing festive knits. Players from the Arsenal Ladies team, including Jordan Nobbs, Leah Williamson and Fara Williams are supporting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day too.
To help raise funds for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, Arsenal Football Club has created a range of exclusive festive Arsenal knits, which each carry a 20% donation of the RRP to Save the Children (Men’s Arsenal Christmas Jumper RRP £35 and Ladies Arsenal Christmas Jumper RRP £30). The Arsenal Christmas Jumpers are available from ArsenalDirect.com and from the Club’s three superstores (while stocks last.)
By signing up, sticking on a silly sweater and donating to Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 16 December, you’ll help to make sure the world’s forgotten children get to have a brighter future.
The Arsenal Foundation has been supporting Save the Children as its global partner since 2011 and has raised more than £2million to support the charity’s life-saving work. Most recently the Club has worked with Save the Children to build football pitches for vulnerable children in Iraq and Indonesia, as well as donating £500,000 at Arsenal’s Legends Match to build football pitches in Jordan and Somalia.
Wear a woolly. Save the Children. Silly just got serious.
