Jolly Christmas Clothing Thursday 2019

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in Charity, News on 21st November, 2019

Dust off your best Christmas attire, get festive and join us for Jolly Christmas Clothing Thursday on 19 December to support our charity. Wear as much or as little festive fashion as you like from a pair elf socks, or your favourite light up Christmas jumper, or why not dress as Santa*? Donate from just £1 to take part.

As part of Jolly Christmas Clothing Thursday you could also:

  • Organise a dress up competition
  • Sell festive treats 
  • Donate prizes and hold a raffle

Raising money to support mental health and learning disabilities couldn’t be easier, but your donations will make a really difference to our services.

Services like perinatal, which is dedicated to working with women in pregnancy and new mums who are concerned about their emotional and or mental health wellbeing. Through money generously donated to the Little Something Fund we were able to help support an arts initiative at Jasmine House Mother and Baby Unit. Research shows that all the senses are affected by mental ill health and these enhancements to our environments provide an area which will encourage recovery and wellbeing. For example, for those experiencing psychosis, noises and colours can be brighter, more vibrant and sometimes potentially frightening. For those in deep depression, the sense of taste can be completely absent, the world looks duller and physical touch becomes less comfortable.

You can donate by texting JOLLYJUMPER followed by the amount you wish to donate e.g. £1, £2, £5 or £10 to 70085. Or you if you require you can request a collection tin or sponsorship form.

Our Fundraising Team can provide support so let us know if yule be taking part in Jolly Christmas Clothing Thursday on 19 December by emailing daniel.robson3@nhs.net.

Merry Christmas!
