Another company hosting a Christmas jumper day is UK based distribution, parts and service company IAPS group
On Friday employees wore traditional and tasteless Christmas jumpers for the day, while paying for the privilege in aid of charity.
The charity selected is HelpHarryHelpOthers, which was started by Harry Moseley after his best friend was diagnosed with brain cancer. The aim was to raise money to help other people with cancer, he was then diagnosed with the same disease himself when he was nine years old and spent his last two years selling handmade bracelets and fulfilling speaking engagements to raise funds.
He died in October 2011, aged 11. Following his death is mother formalised his efforts into a charity which continues to offer help to anyone affected by cancer, while also funding research into a cure for brain tumours.This is the second year running that the company has run a sponsored Christmas jumper day – last year the proceeds went to Save the Children.
Sales and marketing manager Lucy Bebbington, said: “This is a fun way for colleagues to raise money for a really worthwhile cause. We have pledged to raise at least £500 for HelpHarryHelpOthers, so the Christmas jumper event should get us off to a great start.”
