Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF

Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF

Dermot Bannon is supporting CF's Christmas jumper fundraiser.

With Ireland having the highest rates of cystic fibrosis in the world and some of the most severe types of the disease - over 1,300 people are living with cystic fibrosis here currently - Cystic Fibrosis Ireland (CFI) has launched their Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF which takes place on Friday week, December 14th.

 

The aim is to raise awareness and funds to help provide support and services for people with cystic fibrosis nationally. These include support grants for people with cystic fibrosis for exercise, transplant assessment, fertility treatment and counselling, as well as research and new healthcare facilities including €1m required to support the development of a dedicated Cystic Fibrosis Unit at Beaumont Hospital.

Are you one of those people who dreads that time or year? You are asked to wear a ridiculous looking Christmas Jumper to work for no good reason. Well this Christmas, Cystic Fibrosis Ireland are providing everyone with a great reason to wear their Christmas Jumper to work with Christmas Jumper 4CF Day. Talk to your employer now and all you need to do is;

  • Ask you staff or colleagues to wear their Christmas Jumper to work on Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF, Friday 14th December in return for a €5 donation to support people with Cystic Fibrosis in Ireland

  • Anyone not wearing a jumper gets a Bah Humbug badge in return for a €10 donation. It is all for a great cause!

  • Ask your company too if they are willing to match funds raised on the day.

  • Take lots of photos and share them on Social Media!
