We took part in this years Christmas Jumper Day 2020 in aid of Save The Children Charity. Helping raise £300 for this amazing charity. A donation of just £2 could pay for the antibiotics to treat five children suffering from pneumonia or could pay for a bottle of hand sanitiser to help fight Covid-19 in a Save the Children medical clinic.
Save the Children Charity also work with families in the UK, even before the Covid-19 hit, four million children lived in poverty in the UK. The outbreak has illuminated the underlying fragility of welfare provision and household budgets and put more families on the brink of poverty. In the UK children face food poverty, a lack of essential items and learning opportunities, increased stress and sometimes limited or no access to IT equipment or the internet.
When Covid-19 struck thousands more British families faced the prospect of poverty. Save the Children UK launched initiatives to help those feeling the economic effects of the crisis more acutely.
