Jolly jumper campaign aims to raise funds

Stratford Editorial 1st Dec, 2018   0

FESTIVE folk are being urged to pull on their festive jumpers to support Shakespeare Hospice.

The charity’s ‘Jolly Jumper’ campaign kicks off on Monday (December 3) and will run until Christmas.

Supporters are encouraged to don their best – or worst – seasonal sweater and donate to the Shottery-based hospice.

Several businesses have already signed up including the Everyman cinema and Hooray’s.

Fund-raising staff member Sophie Harrison said: “Given the support that has already been pledged, Jolly Jumper 2018 is off to a good start. If the community and other local businesses get involved too, it would make a real difference to our patients and their families.”

Those taking part are also encouraged to share the Jolly Jumper fun on Twitter using the hashtag #TSHJollyJumper.
