Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg swapped his usual suit for a festive jumper to launch a charity campaign.

He pulled on the Christmas tree sweater while visiting the Save the Children shop in Broomhill – which has been open for 25 years.

The charity is urging people to ‘make the world better with a sweater’ by wearing a Christmas jumper on Friday, December 12, and donating £2.

The event has raised £1.5 million over the last three years and this year the Government has pledged to match donations up to £5 million.

Sheffield Hallam MP Mr Clegg said: “It was great to join the team at Save the Children in Broomhill to celebrate their 25th year and thank all the volunteers. The campaign is for a fantastic cause – it’s a great opportunity to dig those Christmas jumpers out and make the world better with a sweater.

“I would urge everyone to get involved.”
