On Friday 14th December 2019, The Fleet Street Clinic, along with thousands of people up and down the UK will embrace their craziest & tackiest Christmas jumpers in celebration of Christmas Jumper Day, to raise money for Save the Children.
Save the children, are a fantastic charity who help some of the world’s most vulnerable people, which is why we choose to support them every year.
Save The Children began Christmas Jumper Day with the aim of “making the world better with a sweater”. While it’s an undoubtedly fun and light-hearted occasion, the main focus of the day is to highlight the lifesaving work the charity does. They help bring essential food, healthcare & education to many children who are, for many reasons, currently missing out.
Save the Children aims to create a world where every child survives, learns and is protected. Child poverty, hunger, education and health are just a few of the charities key aims which help children who live in some of the toughest places in the world.
As a healthcare provider, ensuring all children throughout the world have access to health care is extremely important to us. There is a danger that children are being left behind because they are poor, because they are girls or because of their ethnicity.
Last year, Save the Children helped 10.6 million children through their health and nutrition work. This year they plan to help many, many more!

Breast Cancer Now’s ‘Wear it Pink’ day is one of the biggest fundraising events in the UK.
Thousands of amazing people will ‘Wear It Pink’ in their communities, schools or workplaces for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now. This Friday 19th October the staff of Fleet Street will show off their best pink garments to raise awareness and show solidarity for such a great charity.
‘’This year, 55,000 women will hear the words “it’s breast cancer”
Breast Cancer Now supports nearly 450 of the world’s best researchers across the UK and Ireland. Working together to help prevent breast cancer, help improve the lives of those dealing with it now and most importantly stop people from dying from the disease. Research holds the key to a future where all that changes. Ensuring women get to enjoy their best life whether that be watching their children grow up or travelling the globe. It’s about making sure women are always able to create a lifetime of memories with the people they love.
The Fleet Street Clinic is championing Breast Cancer Now’s goal, that by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live – and live well. By our staff wearing pink, raising awareness and donating we can help get there and make life-saving research happen.
