This year has come with more struggle and uncertainty than usual for so many of us, and as we edge closer to Christmas and the new year, it’s understandable that many of us aren’t in the festive spirit – whether it’s due to ongoing restrictions, being away from family or our continuous working from home.

In fact, one in five (20%) of us are going to miss having a work Christmas party, while a further 20% of us feel a bit awkward and are struggling with getting into the Christmas spirit with work this year.

One tradition that is sure to get us all into the fun-loving festivities is wearing our favourite Christmas jumper – and despite many of us being limited to virtual work meetings and socials, 23% of us are still going to show off their decked-out festive pullovers for Christmas Jumper Day this Friday (11th December).

Kindred, the social enterprise behind the much-loved NHS Rainbow charity t-shirts and hoodies in aid of NHS Charities Together, want to continue to support our healthcare workers this Christmas with a special range of festive jumpers – with all proceeds going towards helping our frontline heroes.

All funds raised by sales of the official NHS Christmas Jumper will help support those who have sacrificed time with loved ones to care for others, those who have struggled with their mental health, and those who will be on their own during the festive period. Kindred want to help raise a smile on the nation and what better way to do so than to support and raise money for so many areas of the NHS.

More than £700,000 has already been raised for through Kindred’s Rainbow T-Shirt campaign.
