Accounting and Finance students taking part in Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day

Undergraduate student teams raising funds for charity event on 12 December

Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day

Staff and students in the Accounting and Finance department at Middlesex University are helping to "make the world better with a sweater".

On 12 December, undergraduate teams from years one, two and three will don their best festive threads to coincide with charity Save the Children's annual Christmas Jumper Day.

Each team is being led by an academic from the department as they compete for a place on the charity's 'Woolly Wonderboard' for the most money raised.

They are: Team Ellie Franklin ('TEAMMDXANFE'); Team John Fletcher ('TEAMMDXANFJ'); and Team Dox Kyriacou ('TEAMMDXANFD'). If you'd like to make a £2 donation to the cause, simply text the code of the team you are backing to 70050.

"We decided to do this to create a buzz within the department and get students and staff involved in some festive fun after a number of coursework deadlines," said Director of Accounting Programmes Jo Abdul-Rahim.

"It encourages students to be more socially aware, inspires enterprise and brings them together on what is a fun and worthwhile cause."

Tanya Steele, Executive Director of Fundraising at Save the Children, said: "This year will be our biggest Christmas Jumper Day yet. We had over a million people take part last year and we want to see even more jumpers being worn this year."
