December 15, 2014, 5:11 pm

Friday, saw our teams from around the world take part in Christmas Jumper Day, to kick start the festive season and to help raise money for Save The Children.

Although a UK event, our international teams were also keen to take part, bearing in mind the temperatures ranged from -2º in New York – where Sarah was on holiday but still wanted to send in her picture – through to the more uncomfortable jumper-wearing temperature of 31º in our Singapore office.
