A Sussex children's hospice is due to receive more than £20,000 from ITV's charity fundraising campaign Text Santa.
Chestnut Tree House is one of 49 children's hospices across the UK to benefit from money raised in the TV appeal.
The 2012 Text Santa raised more than £5.2 million, which will equally benefit six UK charities including Together for Short Lives, the leading charity for UK children's hospices.
Linda Perry, director of children's services at Chestnut Tree House, said: "We are thrilled that the funds raised from Text Santa will benefit children and families in East and West Sussex supported by Chestnut Tree House.
"We are just one of the 49 children's hospice services to benefit from the money donated by ITV viewers which will help support thousands of families caring for a child with a life-limiting illness."
More than five million viewers tuned in to see the entertainment extravaganza on December 21. The show featured ITV's best-loved presenters introducing star guests, live performances and special mini episodes of ITV's biggest shows.
The appeal was presented by Ant & Dec, Phillip Schofield, Christine Bleakley, Paddy McGuinness and Together for Short Lives Patron Holly Willoughby.
