Yamato Christmas Jumper Day raises cash for Save the Children
12 December 2019
Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK (www.yamatoscale.co.uk), the UK business of leading global weighing equipment manufacturer Yamato, held its annual Christmas Jumper Day this week to raise funds for UK charity Save the Children (www.savethechildren.org.uk).
The team came into the office dressed in their favourite Christmas jumper as part of the annual office ‘Christmas Fuddle’, where everyone brings in festive treats to share.
Although it was a bit early, Team Yamato joined the official Christmas Jumper Day campaign which raises much needed funds for Save the Children.
Event organiser Leanne Mann said: “So far, we have raised £81 but there is still time for people to donate and there is more to come from Text and via Just Giving. The official Christmas Jumper Day is on Friday 13 December so our Just Giving page and Text account are still open.”
Anyone wishing to donate to the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Appeal via Yamato can donate £2 by texting TEAMYAMATO to 70050 or donate via Just Giving.
To add to the fun there was a prize for the best dressed member of the team, won by Mikaela White, and an office sweep stake that was scooped by Steve Dalton.
Operations manager Andrea Spencer said: “We’d like to thank Leanne Mann for organising the day, without her hard work it just wouldn’t happen.
“It gives the team the chance to bond and have some fun and to do something worthwhile for a deserving charity at the same time”
The Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day happens nationally on Friday so there is still time to donate.
