Santa's helper

23rd October 2014

Santa has gained an extra helper, as Phillip will be launching ITV's annual Text Santa appeal on the 1st December with a 24 hour live broadcast on ITV (more exciting details to follow!)

The Text Santa campaign will then come to a close with a three-hour Christmas charity appeal extravaganza on Friday 19 December. The show will be presented by Ant & Dec, Phillip with co-host Christine Bleakley and Alesha Dixon with Paddy McGuinness.

Text Santa raises money and awareness for six UK-based charities in the run-up to the big night. This year’s chosen charities are Teenage Cancer Trust, Guide Dogs, WellChild, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Alzheimer’s Society and Together for Short Lives.

All money generously donated by ITV viewers goes directly to the six charities. ITV directly funds all operating costs and 100% of donations get passed to the charities as soon as we receive it.
