Christmas Jumper Day 2016
OLD MILL BREWERY, PUBS AND STAFF RAISE CASH FOR SAVE THE CHILDREN
Christmas jumper day returned on the 16th December 2016 and Old Mill Brewery joined in with people all over the country, wearing Christmas jumpers to help save Children’s lives.
As many people enjoy the festivities over Christmas they often do it in their Christmas jumper in the pub! So why not get as many of our pubs involved as possible and raise money for such a worthwhile cause at the same time. Even staff from the head office in Selby joined in and the money we raised was then generously topped up by Managing Director Mark Wetherell bringing the total to £300.00
“It was just for a bit of fun, I mean almost everyone has a Christmas jumper nowadays, the dafter the better” says Kelly Wood, Telesales and Administrator at Old Mill Brewery “so we thought we would see how it goes and I’m pleased to say that so many of our pubs and their customer really got tinselled up and enjoyed being silly for a serious cause that we’re going to do it all over again next year.”
The money raised will go towards Save the Children’s life-changing work with the world’s poorest children. Every year 7.6 million children under five die from easily preventable causes like pneumonia and malnutrition.
Save the Children is working to stop this happening and ensure more children get the chance to grow up and fulfil their potential, no matter where they live.
