On Friday, December 10th, we participated in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day! Our crew dressed up in their craziest, most festive sweaters and donated to Save the Children.
We did our share to help improve the future for children by putting on our Christmassy knits and contributing. Every pound we raised will go towards helping kids in the UK and throughout the world acquire the basic necessities they need to laugh, play, and enjoy the magic all around them!
Our teams also took part in the Save the Children quiz which included questions on festive films & music, Christmas around the world and a quick look back at 2021! As competitive as Barlows is, there could only be one winner, this year it was Kevin Marshall from our Manchester branch who scored and impressive 27 points. Head Office’s “Barlows Local” department took second place with 26 points and Manchester’s Steve Wilson rounded off the podium in 3rd place with 25 points!
Christmas Jumper Day was the final Foundation Friday of the year and what a year it has been! We can’t thank the Barlows Team enough for getting together and supporting the sometimes ridiculous themes to raise money for our local communities and various charities! Having raised over £1,000 for some great causes we can’t wait to make 2022 even better and push our Barlows Foundation to new limits with some very exciting fundraising events.
