Text Santa appeal: Age UK

Over the past week, we've been telling you quite a lot about this year's Text Santa appeal.

We're supporting six charities, helping them to raise money and awareness of the work they do.

Over the next week, we'll be telling you more about those charities - and tonight we start with a closer look at Age UK.

100% of donations made by viewers are evenly distributed to ITV's chosen charities within three months of each televised appeal.

All Text Santa operating costs including staffing and the programme itself are funded directly by ITV as part of its corporate giving, and not from its corporate partners or viewer contributions._
