Cosy Christmas jumpers for a good cause
Half of all sales of Cashmirino’s Christmas jumper will go to charity
There’s nothing better than a cuddly Christmas jumper, so how about a stylish jumper created for children by a child to benefit poorly little ones?
Cashmirino is selling its Christmas jumper at the Burlington Arcade store in London to raise money for charity.
Designed by a little boy called Victor who won the competition to design the brand’s Christmas jumper last year, half of all sales will go towards raising money for a new paediatric echocardiograph machine for the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity.
Children from across the UK are referred for treatment at the Royal Brompton Hospital. Currently the hospital only has two echocardiograph machines, which is used to diagnose heart conditions. A third would help the hospital expand outreach clinics, significantly reduce waiting times and help them treat more children each year.
From £65, the jumpers are being sold at sizes to fit children aged 6-18 months right up to 2-8 year-olds.
