Dogs in Christmas Jumpers – level 3

19-12-2017 07:00

In aid of Save the Children, which is an international non-governmental organisation that promotes children’s rights, hundreds of dogs converged on a London park to break the record for the most dogs wearing Christmas jumpers. The dogs even had the chance to prove their athletic chops.

Helena Wiltshire from the organisation explained that 15th December is Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, on which the organisation asks people to pay two pounds, wear a silly Christmas sweater and have fun. Then the organisation thought, why stop at humans? Dogs can get involved, too!

Difficult words: promote (support, help, make better), converge on (come to meet), chops (skill).
