The Children's Hospice Across Scotland (CHAS) is encouraging Scots to wear their festive clothes on December 13 and raise needed funds for Christmas. 

Festive Friday is an annual campaign led by the charity and has been supported by the likes of Lewis Capaldi who supported the fundraising campiagn by posing in his Christmas socks. 

Last year, people across the country donned their Christmas jumpers, socks and hats for the appeal that raised more than £13,000 to support the charity's work.

The fundraising campaign helps families facing the toughest challenges of their lives this Christmas.

Head of community fundraising at CHAS Sarah Secomes said: “Lewis is just one of the many Scots who took part in Festive Friday last year and we are hopeful for even more people to do so in 2019.

"The initiative helps us raise essential funds and awareness of the work our dedicated support staff and volunteers deliver for families across Scotland.

“Festive Friday couldn’t be easier to take part in, and I’d encourage people to dig out your silliest Santa hats, sparkliest socks and jolliest jumpers and help families this Christmas. Visit our website and request a fundraising pack to help your Festive Friday sparkle like Lewis’!”
