Save the Children and BorrowMyDoggy have teamed up once again for a doggy Christmas Jumper Day. Set to be the most pawsome event of the year for the pooch-loving community, more than 300 dogs are expected to lead the way, from Labradors and Spaniels to Boxers and Dachshunds all to support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
On Sunday 8th December 2019, ahead of Christmas Jumper Day, BorrowMyDoggy and Save the Children will once again be trying to break the world record for the biggest gathering of dogs and people in Christmas jumpers at 12pm.
Whether you’re a dog owner, dog borrower or dog lover, you can let your pup show off their festive style in their Christmas jumper. Make sure you also don your daftest, most wonderful woollies to support this amazing cause. Pastries, coffees, teas, dog snacks, and pup toys will be provided. To take part in this event which also included hay bale racing, a tombola and the Chelsea Pensioners singing Christmas carols, just visit xmas.borrowmydoggy.com
To make sure you and your hound do not make any fashion fur-pas at this Christmassy, canine event, BorrowMyDoggy will be selling dog and human Christmas jumpers on their website ahead of the big day prices starting at £15.
To kick off the festivities BorrowMyDoggy are inviting dog lovers of all ages to put their paws and pens to paper to design their very own Christmas jumper. The competition is open to the creative minds of all ages and the lucky winner will have their design manufactured into a winter woolly especially for them and their canine companion. To be in with a chance of winning just send in your entry by 11pm on 17th November by visiting this link – jumper.borrowmydoggy.com. The lucky competition winner will be revealed at the doggy Christmas Jumper Day event on 8th December.
To support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 13th December all you have to do is simply stick on a fabulously festive knit and sign up and donate £2 to Save the Children at christmasjumperday.org.
Money raised from taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help buy nutritious food for their entire family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again. It could also help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.
Sarah Button-Stephens, Head of Christmas Jumper Day says: “We’re very grateful for BorrowMyDoggy’s support and funding for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day campaign. For so many families, their furry friends are an integral part of their Christmas celebrations, so we thought we’d be barking mad not to include man’s best friend in all of our festive fun.”
