Samantha Cameron donned festive knitwear today as schoolchildren from across the country exchanged Christmas jumpers in 10 Downing Street.

The Prime Minister’s wife joined more than 40 youngsters as they swapped the winter woollies they had designed for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Mrs Cameron, 43, donned a light blue sweater featuring falling snow and two robins which was made by Asda’s George, the charity’s partner.

Save the Children is encouraging people to wear Christmas jumpers today and donate £2 to help vulnerable youngsters in the UK and abroad.

Speaking at Number 10, Terence Lovell, the charity’s head of community giving, said: “People across the UK are wearing their festive knitwear to help support children both here in the UK and around the world.

“Samantha Cameron has been an ambassador for Save the Children for several years and we’re delighted to have her support.

“She’s been wearing her jumper. She’s done a wonderful job encouraging all the children who’ve designed their fantastic jumpers.”

Children aged four to 11 from Stewart Fleming School and Courtland Primary School in London, Sea Mills Primary school in Bristol, St Johns & St Peters CofE in Birmingham, Linthorpe Community School in Middlesborough and Birchfields Primary school in Manchester attended the event at Number 10.
