On Friday, Daniel Zeichner, Member of Parliament for Cambridge, wore his favourite festive pullover, as he met volunteers outside the Save the Children shop, to mark Christmas Jumper Day.
Now in its tenth year, Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day returned to Cambridge as local people wore their favourite Yuletide woolly knits to raise vital funds for the charity. Mr Zeichner encouraged residents to join the woolly revolution by showing off their best (and indeed worst) festive sweats, and donate £2 to the much-loved charity.
He said: “I am delighted to join the millions of people up and down the length of the country pulling on their festive woollies to lend support to a great cause – to help create a brighter future for children in some of the toughest parts of the world, and give children living in poverty here in the UK the chance to thrive and fulfil their undoubted potential. I encourage all Cambridge residents to step up their game and get involved, a call I have no doubt will be answered”.
