Epping Forest MP Dame Eleanor Laing was among a host of MPs who supported Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day.
Now in its seventh year, Save the Children asked even more people across the UK to join the woolly revolution and help make the world better with a sweater.
Since its launch in 2012 the fundraising event has raised over £17m for the world’s most vulnerable children.
More than five million people across the UK were set to take part this year with schools, homes and offices ditching their day-to-day dress and donning their daftest, most wonderful woollies.
Dame Eleanor said: "I was delighted to support Christmas Jumper Day, it’s a fantastic cause that does so much good, raising money and awareness for children here in the UK and around the world.
"Millions of people up and down the UK pulled on a Christmas jumper for a great cause – to help create a brighter future for children, and it was great to be a part of it."
