A Christmas Cube!

4th December 2014

As part of this year's Text Santa celebrations, Phillip's very own show The Cube gets a festive makeover.

Alesha Dixon and Paddy McGuinness join forces to raise money for Text Santa in this special edition of the game show. For the first time ever two people will take on the challenges, but can they beat The Cube and does The Body seem a little different?!

“When we designed The Cube concept, we were all very precious about the way it was done and the way it looked,” Phillip explains. “We have thrown that all out the window for Text Santa and we have done something I didn’t think we would ever do. It is very different and very exciting.”

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

The appeal has raised £15 million for charities since it started in 2011. All funds raised for Text Santa will be distributed equally between the six charities within three months of the appeal. Text Santa raises much-needed funds for the chosen charities and just as importantly, fosters long-term relationships with viewers, helping to create visibility for the charities beyond the televised appeal.

It's the fourth year of the show and supporting Text Santa for 2014 are appeal partners Morrisons, stocking the Text Santa hats and headbands available across the UK in their stores, and TheHut.com who have a range of Text Santa merchandise including t-shirts, pyjamas and onesies for both adults and children.

Viewers will be able to make donations throughout the appeal via text; thanks to Text Santa partner Vodafone, by using their JustTextGiving service, which ensures 100% of your donation goes directly to Text Santa and allows you to add Gift Aid easily.

Viewers can donate £5 by texting the word SANTA5 to 70760 or donate £10 by texting SANTA10 to 70760. You must be 16+. Please ask the bill payer’s permission. Last date for donations is 5pm on the 9th January 2015.

With plenty of more surprises in store, catch all the action this 19th December from 8pm on ITV. Please visit itv.com/textsanta/donate
