When it comes to Christmas jumpers, this Lincoln graduate goes all in.
Recent Lincoln Graduate Daniel Baker has set up his own Christmas jumper challenge this December. To raise money for charity, he will wear a Christmas jumper every day until Christmas.
The challenge is done in memory of two of Daniel’s late grandparents. He said:
“Ten years ago, we lost my granddad Denis Ingle. We lost my dear grandma Margaret this summer too and I want to give something back to them. They’re with me all the time and I’m sure they’d love what I’m doing”
“It’s not a physically gruelling challenge, not like a bike ride or something, but it’s a challenge in it’s own way because it’s a commitment.”
All money raised will be given to Alzheimers Society and Cancer Research UK. To track his progress Daniel posts selfies on Facebook every day.
Daniel says his family loves his little campaign and have been very supportive of his efforts. My family love it. He has also received support from his co-workers at The Cambridge News where he now works. He said:
“My work team have been incredible. They’ve backed me all the way and my lovely customers have been so generous too. I have even worked in my newsroom dressed like an elf which was a great sight I’m sure!
“We couldn’t be doing what we’re doing without the support of my work friends and colleagues. They’ve even donated money, so even better. The two collection boxes in my shop have gone down a storm. And the customers come away with a smile too!»
