#ChristmasJumperDay at Club Doncaster

14 December 2018

Sponsored by

Players and staff at Club Doncaster have been taking part in Save The Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day.

Staff based at the Keepmoat Stadium and the Club Doncaster Elite Sport Centre at Cantley Park donned their best festive attire and made a financial donation to support the cause.

Money raised by the day will help the charity protect children in need around the world.

Rovers club captain Andy Butler said: “It's great that all of the players and staff are happy to take part in Christmas Jumper Day - and there are some interesting ones that some of the lads have picked up.

“There are a few of us in the squad who have our own children, so it is a small gesture from us which is part of a really big national event. I am sure plenty of Rovers and Dons fans are also taking part in their school, college or workplace and look forward to seeing some of the best examples on social media later.”
