As part of the Text Santa Appeal we've been looking at the work done by the six charities that the money will go towards helping.

One of the charities involved in this year's ITV Text Santa appeal is Whizz-Kidz.

One of the young people that they have helped is Jamie Green from Malton in North Yorkshire.

Jamie has cerebral palsy.

Derek Proud went to meet him at Durham University where he is currently studying.
