Hannah Blythyn – AM for Delyn – and I visited Save The Children charity shop in Mold to support the national Christmas jumper fundraiser.
Save The Children works for children across the globe in bringing an end to child poverty. But they also work in emergency situations – either war torn nations or ones that have been hit by natural disasters. Save The Children are key in providing education and health resources to children who struggle to gain access to these basic needs.
The Christmas jumper day has been running for 4 years and has seen millions of pounds donated to Save The Children, making a huge difference to the lives of children around the world.
The shop in Mold is fantastically welcoming, and all the volunteers give of their own time to help raise money for causes at home and abroad. Every penny donated and every item given helps Save The Children, and makes the world a better place for vulnerable people.
The Government plays its part by giving Gift Aid of 25p in the pound on all items.

“Save The Children Christmas Jumper day is a great cause which is raising money to support the most vulnerable children around the world.
“I’m more than happy have my Christmas jumper – and hat – on today alongside the brilliant volunteers at the Save The Children Shop in Mold to support this campaign”
Diane Heaton, shop manager said:
“We are pleased to see David, Hannah and the Mayor, when they made their usual visit to Save The Children Shop, to thank the volunteers and to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day with them.”
“Volunteers are always welcome, and any unwanted goods or Christmas presents are always gratefully received. The Shop is open 9.30am-4.00pm Monday to Saturday (Tel: 01352 752753), and Diane (the Manager) wishes to say thank you to all her hardworking volunteers.”
