With December in full swing, it was time once again to put the ‘fun’ in fundraiser with our annual Christmas jumper day. For one extra-comfy day, we waved goodbye to sensible attire and gave big seasonal greeting to questionably colourful wool.
There was not a polo neck or shirt in sight as we turned up in our favourite festive knits, confirming again that the DOMU Christmas Knitwear Collection is as diverse as it gets.
Many went for a stylish approach, donning chunky-knit woolies in elegant autumnal shades, while others – well – let’s just say you don’t know what festive means until you’ve seen your Head of Marketing go full-elf!
In total, we managed to raised over £100 for Big Change MCR, a local, government-backed initiative dedicated to providing individuals who are homeless with the financial support to establish and maintain independent lives.
As a business born-and-bred in Manchester, we’re thrilled to be able to support an organisation that’s making a long-lasting positive impact in our local community.
Our charitable cheer doesn’t stop at garish garments either. Since the start of the month, we’ve been collecting long-life food donations for the Neighbourhood Food Collection, a collaborative effort between Tesco, Fareshare and The Trussell Trust to provide meals for individuals and families in crisis. Wonderfully, it already looks like we’ll be needing some extra baskets in addition to the three we currently have set up!
Between elf-themed thermals and generous donations, it’s certainly been a typical DOMU December – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
