It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But also the time of the year when popping on a pair of elf ears and a particularly brash multi-coloured garment is not only considered perfectly acceptable, but encouraged.

With this spirit in mind, all our staff across the University of Hull food outlets will be taking part in #ChristmasJumperDay in support of local charity Dove House Hospice on Friday 16 December. If you would like to applaud our fashionable team members and also support a worthy cause, you can do so by making a donation in the collection pots situated in each of our venues.

Free drink upgrade for customers in a Christmas jumper

We would also like to see you lot get involved in the fun! Which means its time to dig out that dodgy jumper from the back of your cupboard and wear it with pride. If we spot you come in looking suitably festive, we’ll automatically upgrade your drinks purchase for free! Just as a little pat on the back and from us for taking part in the merriment.

Win a bottle of wine in our #ChristmasJumperDay Selfie Competition

Whether you’re showing off your Santa Claus sweater around campus or snuggled up in a reindeer onesie at home, we want to see your Christmas jumper selfies! Just tag @hullcampuslife or @hullunifoodie in your picture and you could win one of six bottles of wine. Points go to the most creative and Christmassy snaps out there!

Need a bit of jumper inspiration? Colin is on hand to show you how it’s done.
