Luke Evans is 'in a festive mood' with Christmas knitwear

Luke Evans says Save The Children’s secondhand Christmas jumper line “really got” him “in a festive mood”.

The ‘Dracula Untold’ star thinks it is “amazing” to be the face of the pre-loved knitwear collection - which is supplied by vintage chain Beyond Retro and will raise money this festive period to help make child poverty a thing of the past.

The winter woolies - which are each named after an individual child supported by the Save the Children andfeature their story on its label - can be purchased at the brick-and-mortar store Story Knits in London in the lead-up to Christmas Jumper Day on 7 December for one week.

The 44-year-old actor - who has been a Save The Children ambassador for seven years - said: “Walking into Story Knits really got me in the festive mood and gave me a totally unique jumper to see me through winter.

“Story Knits doesn’t just give you the opportunity to pick up a trendy knit without compromising the planet, it brings you closer to the incredible work of Save the Children and the young people they’re helping around the world, including in the UK.
