Last week’s Big Bag Pack raised £104,000for the six key charities being supported by ITV’s Text Santa campaign.

Thousands of volunteers joined ITV Newsteams across the country to pack bags at local supermarkets.

Money raised by the Text Santa campaign will support six key charities. Age UK, Barnardo’s, BeatBullying, the British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent (which supports children with cancer) and Help the Hospices will all benefit.

Our presenter, Pam Royle, and our weather presenter, Ross Hutchinson, were kept busy by shoppers at Morrisons in Killingworth.
