As workplaces, schools and colleges prepare to don their finest seasonal attire on Thursday, December 7, Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices are getting in on the fun and have plenty of humorous and traditional yuletide jerseys in stock across all their stores.

Retail area manager for Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices, Lindy Welch-Smart, said: “We love getting behind Christmas Jumper Day and we have a great selection in our shops.
