Christmas Jumper Day For Teenage Cancer

The story of the Christmas jumper is one of the most fascinating and interesting traditions to have caught the British imagination 

 

The history of these jumpers can be traced back to 19th century Scandinavia, where thick, warm, brightly coloured jumpers were ideal for staving off the chill of winter. Closely related to the Fair Isle geometric patterns worn by fishermen (reputedly to assist in the identification of sailors lost at sea), these Scandinavian sweaters were rapidly adopted by skiers.

 

Then at some point during the 70s the Brits  decided to make  Christmas jumpers the classic gift of choice for dads presents which would then be proudly worn on Boxing Day, and usually creased having been recently extracted  from the packaging. 

 

From those humble beginnings the Christmas jumper day is now a national treasure, with nearly all workplaces considering it acceptable attire for at least one day of the year. 

 

Lightcliffe has its own way of celebrating this special day. Each year  on Christmas jumper day it invites all employees to bring a donation along with a nominated charity. Whatever is collected on the day is then doubled by the business with the new total being donated on one of the nominated charities, which in turn is selected by drawing out of a hat. This year the donation was given to a most worthy cause, that being Teenage Cancer.  

 

As well as being a fun day for all it is a gentle reminder that there are always those in need at this time of year with the forthcoming donations serving as a reminder of the heart-warming British charitable spirit.

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
