Christmas socks and Santa hatEmbrace the holiday cheer with a unique twist this year at Jolly Christmas Clothing on Thursday 14 December. Join us in supporting the DPT Charity by donning your favourite festive fashion, be it subtle Santa socks or a dazzling light-up Christmas jumper!

Participating is easy and fun – wear as little or as much festive flair as you desire. Your contribution can be as simple as a pair of Santa socks or as elaborate as a full ensemble featuring your cherished light-up Christmas jumper*, Santa socks, and festive earrings. There is no reason not to take part in this festive celebration!

By wearing your holiday fashion, you are not just spreading joy but also contributing to a great cause. Donate as little as £1 to help our charity extend its reach beyond our usual funding. Over the past year, these funds have enhanced both outdoor and indoor spaces, facilitated unique therapy programs, and supported the wellbeing of both patients and staff.

Making a donation is quick and easy – simply text JOLLYCHRISTMAS followed by your chosen amount (e.g., £1, £2, £5, or £10) to 70450. Please note that standard network rates apply in addition to the donation amount.
