Celebrities including Holly Willoughby and Kate Garraway have joined this year’s Save the Children campaign for Christmas.

Christmas Jumper Day is back for its 10th year and will take place this Friday (10 December).

A star-studded line up of supporters have announced their support for the event, which encourages people to wear their favourite festive jumper and make a suggested donation of £2 for adults or £1 for kids, to the charity.

This year marks a decade since the first Christmas Jumper Day and Save the Children are once again asking for the public to get involved, with the help of some celebrity fans.

In a release, Holly Willoughby said she was “really excited” to be taking part and said she hopes everyone, “joins in and gets behind this wonderful cause.”

“It’s now more important than ever that we support charities like Save The Children so they can continue their vital work with children in the UK and across the world,” she added.

Save the Children work to provide basics including food, schooling and medical care to children around the world.

The charity explain that, “£1 could pay for antibiotics to treat five children suffering from pneumonia, one of the biggest killers of children in South Sudan, £2 could pay for a bottle of hand sanitiser to help fight Covid-19 in a Save the Children medical clinic, and £6 could buy a face shield for a superhero health worker in Yemen.”

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway also expressed her support for the charity, saying that Christmas is, "such an important time to think about others who perhaps haven’t got that magic in their life, which is why this year I’m supporting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day,” she said.

Save the Children has even released its own range of Christmas jumpers for £18 which can be purchased online or in select stores. 100% of the profits from sales go to charity.

Holly Willoughby and Kate Garraway support Save the Children’s 10th Annual Christmas Jumper Day taking place this year on Friday 10th December. To sign up, visit the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day website, where you can also order a free fundraising pack.

Kate and Holly are joined by the Spice Girls’ Emma Bunton, presenter Alex Scott and comedian Alex Brooker, along with others from the world of TV and entertainment to promote the fun event and get as many people involved and raising money as possible.
