Wearing their Christmas jumpers outside Ridgewood Post Office and Stores are Sue, Alice and Jon Gothard and Emma Taylor.

Good start to Christmas Jumper Day at Ridgewood Post Office

Update on Tuesday, December 18: Ridgewood Post Office raised £102.42 for Save the Children Fund by inviting donations from customers on Christmas Jumper Day.

This will be added to raffle proceeds of £61 which will also be going to the charity.

From our original story on Friday, December 14: Christmas Jumper Day got off to a good start at Ridgewood Post Office and Stores this morning.

This is because there was already £61 in the kitty for the Save the Children Fund, the charity benefiting from the nationwide event.

The money was raised in a raffle during late night shopping at the Post Office last week.

Today the team donned Christmas jumpers, decorated the shop with mini jumpers as bunting – made by Sue Gothard – and set aside more for customers donating to the cause.

Even a collection jar where customers could contribute to Save the Children was wearing a Christmas jumper.


Sue Gothard, who runs Ridgewood Post Office and Stores with her husband Jon, is pictured with mini-jumpers she made to exchange for donations in aid of Save the Children Fund. Note too the collection jar which was wearing its own Christmas jumper.
