MWNT beach was ‘decorated’ with a Christmas jumper this week to mark Save the Children’s flagship fundraiser, Christmas Jumper Day.

Save the Children has teamed up with Pembrokeshire ‘sand circles’ artist, Marc Treanor to mark the event by creating a unique Christmas jumper design on beaches in Anglesey, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and the Vale of Glamorgan – including the beach at Mwnt.

A very special person - Father Christmas - took time out from his preparations for the big day to join Marc at Mwnt beach to help him create and capture the artwork.

Christmas Jumper Day is back for the sixth year running on Friday December 15 and is expecting more than five million people across the UK to take part to help raise money for vulnerable children around the world. Taking part is simple by signing up at, sticking on a seasonal sweater and donating £2.

People can donate £5 directly to the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day fund via text by sending TEAMSTCCYMRU to 70050.

Artist Marc Treanor said: “When I was approached by Save the Children to re-create a Christmas Jumper on a beach, I jumped at the chance to help.

“Beaches are not traditionally associated with Christmas, so I was looking forward to the challenge of working on Welsh beaches in December, and supporting a great charity which helps children all over the world as well as here in Wales.”

Louise Davies, head of Save the Children in Wales added: “We’re thrilled to have the support of talented artists and famous names to promote this year’s Christmas Jumper Day in Wales.

“All money raised through wacky woolly-wearing could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help us 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 our work in some of the most deprived communities in Wales supporting families through our programme work.”
