Phillip Schofield is following up last year's 24 hour Text Santa TV marathon by appearing on every ITV show from 6am to 10pm on Tuesday 1 December.
The fourth annual Text Santa appeal has been our most successful ever, increasing the total raised by a massive 20% from 2013.
With the help George Clooney’s role in a specially-written sketch of Downton Abbey and Phillip Schofield’s record-breaking 24 hours round-the-clock presenting - and of course your very generous donations - Text Santa 2014 has raised a whopping £6.2 million for our six UK-based charities.
And the fundraising isn't over yet: don't forget you can still donate until January 31 either online or by visiting a branch of Santander.
This year’s fundraising means that Text Santa's six charities - Teenage Cancer Trust, Guide Dogs, WellChild, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Alzheimer’s Society and Together for Short Lives - will receive a cheque for more than £1,000,000. The first instalment has already been paid to the charities (the rest will be paid by April), which means that already YOUR donations are changing people's lives.
Since 2011, Text Santa has now raised more than £21 million for charities in the country, and since ITV covers all the operational costs, 100% of all donations goes direct to the people who need it.
Donate now to Text Santa's three 2015 charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish® UK and Save the Children.
100% of your donations will be shared equally amongst Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish® UK and Save the Children, going directly to support vital work both in the UK and abroad.
All donations to Save the Children International work will be matched pound for pound by the UK Government up to five million pounds.
We're off! We kick off Text Santa 2014 with Ant and Dec, followed by Phillip and Christine and then Paddy and Alesha. So stay tuned for lots of fundraising fun.
