Text Santa helps British Heart Foundation

This year, ITV's Christmas appeal, Text Santa, is supporting six charities.

One of those is the British Heart Foundation.

Money raised through the campaign will pay for more heart failure nurses, who help patients to keep their independence and stay in their homes.
