To support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 14 December, Save the Children’s premium chain of Mary’s Living & Giving charity shops has teamed up with Visa and Transport for London to launch contactless Christmas jumper pop-up shops at two iconic tube stations.
The shops will be aimed at commuters who have forgotten to ditch their day-to-day dress and don their festive knit for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 14 December.
This in line with the launch of Save the Children’s partnership with VISA to launch their first contactless Christmas Jumper. The shops will be open on 14 December from 7:30am until 1pm and commuters will spot famous faces including Josh Denzel, and Aston Merrygold at the pop-up shop in Kings Cross on Friday 14 December, wearing the contactless Christmas jumpers to gather as many donations from the general public as possible.
Where: Kings Cross and Canary Wharf Tube Stations
When: The shops will be open on Friday 14 December from 7:30am until 1pm
Why: As Christmas Jumpers sweep the nation for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, the charity wants to ensure that everyone has their chance to buy a festive knit and donate to help make the world better with a sweater.
How: The shops will be selling a range of vintage Christmas jumpers at £10 a jumper, Christmas tree decorations, Christmas cards and gift wrap. All purchases will be made by contactless payment technology and every product sold will raise money to help children around the world build a better future*.
