Christmas is the time for giving and here at CCC we decided to get into the true spirit of Christmas and take part in Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day 2014. The rules were simple; wear a festive sweater, make a donation, and spread the jumper joy!
Now in its third year, the woolly revolution has already raised over £1.6 million and this year the government is matching every pound donated. Just £2 can buy potentially life-saving antibiotics for three babies whilst £200 can buy enough high energy peanut paste to treat 40 malnourished children for a week. A little most certainly goes a long way.
The team here threw themselves into the task with their usual enthusiasm, and there was a fantastic array of jumpers on show. Even Event Managers that were heading out to run events made sure they got in on the action before they left.
Just to build excitement and add a little competition, we made sure there was a prize for the winning jumper. Our lovely Event Manager Fiona was the lucky winner, with a home made jumper that included lights, tinsel and a stocking with treats for everyone in! A fantastic sweater by all accounts.
We had a great day. We’re always looking for new ways to build motivation and teamwork, and we had a lot of fun whilst contributing to a really worthwhile cause. It’s not too late to get involved – take a look at our Christmas Edition of Easy Office Based Team Building Ideas for some further inspiration!
