Text Santa appeal: Help the Hospices

It's Text Santa night on ITV and all this week we've been telling you about the charities to benefit from our annual Christmas appeal.

We've featured reports on Age UK, Barnardo's, Beat Bullying, the British Heart Foundation and Clic Sargent. And tonight, it's the turn of Help the Hospices.

We've been finding out how the charity has supported one of the hospice services in our region - which, for one woman, has made a big difference to her life.

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.

You can watch 'Text Santa' tonight on ITV, with all the fun starting at 20:00
