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!

During the weekend the team at Fleet Street Clinic took part in a 5km mud run to fundraise for cancer research.
Despite the cold weather and mud, the girls had a brillant day and a lot of laughs!
