The dazzling Strictly Come Dancing knit pays homage to Britain’s most iconic dance contest while the Love Island juggernaut also stars in the range – Tis what it Tis. £5 from the sale of each jumper from the collection will go to the charity to help children around the world have a brighter future.
This year a separate range will support a selection of charities including The Big Issue, MIND, Remake. This collection includes knits paying homage to Lewis Capaldi, Tyson Fury, and Britain’s most iconic pastry, the Greggs’ Vegan Sausage Roll.

The collection also includes iconic personalities from across the pond including Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, football legend Megan Rapinoe; and the international sensation Lizzo.
Mike Harding, Founder of notjust, said: “We’re back again for our third year, paying homage to the people and events that have shaped history this year. Even in times of division we’re constantly seeing spectacular talent come through that the world collectively rejoices over and for that we’re paying thanks to the brave, bold and beautiful through our festive range of knits – and hope to inspire some laughs along the way.
“Alongside this, we create everything domestically in fair and ethical working conditions, keeping our carbon emissions down and to provide jobs to the local community. We want to empower our customers to give back by donating funds from their purchase to charity, so as well as looking great at their Christmas party they know they’ve also had a positive effect on society.”
Sarah Button-Stephens, Senior Campaign Manager for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, said: “We are delighted to be working with notjust on a fantastic range of Christmas jumpers that celebrates some of Britain’s most loved personalities. All money raised could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help buy nutritious food for their entire family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again. It could also help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support. By purchasing a jumper from our collection, you can help make the world better with a sweater!”
