Today we revealed that our 7000 Santa’s little helpers helped raised over £104,000 during last week's Big Bag Pack. A huge well done to everyone involved, including our charity volunteers, primary schools, News and This Morning team and our hosts – Morrisons!

But they aren’t the only helpers that have been out in force for Text Santa this year.

Across social media, you’ve been sharing what you’ve been doing to help raise money for the appeal this year.

And it’s not too late to get involved!

Host a festive quiz, organise a Friday fundraiser, or join in the main event.

On Friday we’ll be encouraging as many people as possible to wear a hat to show their support and in return, donate to Text Santa.

We’ve even set up a way for you and your colleagues, friends or family to donate online.
