Datum Support Christmas Jumper Day
Staff at the Datum Group have been getting into the festive spirit by supporting Christmas Jumper Day.
The team at Datum House in Greater Manchester swapped their branded Datum uniforms for the day to don jolley jumpers.
And, it was all for a good cause as in wearing their colourful jumpers they raised much-needed funds for Save The Children.
Datum HR operative Jennie Chadwick, co-ordinated the Datum effort and was delighted with the response.
She said: “It is always a great day and event Datum have supported for the past couple of years.
“Everyone enters into the spirit and it’s nice to be able to have a bit of fun but also raise money for a worthy cause.”
Staff provided cakes and treats helped to get the team into the spirit and everyone got involved to raise funds for the charity.
Nationally, the day raised almost £170,000 and goes some way to boosting the millions raised by Save The Children to help young people around the world.
The fundraising event was first launched in 2012, and is becoming a festive favourite – trending on Twitter with the hashtag #ChristmasJumperDay.
