Text Santa - what a result!

20th January 2015

Schofe is officially a record breaker after the fourth annual Text Santa appeal was announced as the most successful ever!

From Phillip’s 24 hours round-the-clock presenting to George Clooney’s Downton Abbey guest appearance, Text Santa 2014 raised over £6.2million – a whopping 20% more than 2013.

"What a result” says Phillip; “I enjoyed every moment of the 24 hour Text Santa challenge this year and it's great to see it paying off, helping to achieve the highest total ever."

This year’s fundraising means that each of the six chosen UK-based charities will receive a cheque for more than £1,000,000 from ITV’s Text Santa. The six charities supported by Text Santa 2014 are Teenage Cancer Trust, Guide Dogs, WellChild, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Alzheimer’s Society and Together for Short Lives.

The first instalment has been paid to the charities, with the rest due by April. Already, viewers’ donations are changing people’s lives.

Since its launch in 2011, Text Santa has now raised more than £21 million, with 100% of all donations going directly to UK charities and all operational costs of the appeal covered directly by ITV.

And the fundraising doesn't stop there, as you can continue to donate until January 31st.
