ITV’s Text Santa Back For Fourth Year Running

Popular charity fundraiser, Text Santa, will return in December 2014 to raise money and awareness for another six UK based charities.

Every year since 2011, UnderTheChristmasTree like millions of others have tuned in to ITV to watch the festive show which raises huge amounts for six different British charities every year.

This year’s show will be supporting Alzheimer’s Society, Guide Dogs, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Teenage Cancer Trust, Together for Short Lives and WellChild with 100% of donations made by viewers going directly to the charities.

In 2013 Text Santa was watched by a peak audience of 6.1 million people and raised a whopping £5.1 million. This was divided by the six chosen charities which were Age UK, Barnardo’s, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent and Help the Hospices.

How can we all get invlolved? well in 2013 it was all about “Hattitude” with fun and crazy Santa hat’s, recipes and more being purchased this year we can expect more of the same. For information and ideas head on over to: ITV Text Santa Website.

Hosting the show last year included Ant & Dec, Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Christine Bleakley and Paddy McGuinness – hopefully all will make a retun this year, who all took on exciting challenges such as the Tree of terror, Holly and Phil changing hair colour and more.

Other guest specials included Cheryl Cole paying a visit to Coronation Street, Robbie William’s preforming and the cast of Corrie performing ‘The Pogues Fairytale of New York’.  we wonder what we can expect from this years show? hopefully more of the same!
