Crisis to feature in ITV1 Text Santa campaign
Crisis is one of nine UK charities to feature in a major new television fundraising project to raise funds for the charity during the Christmas period.
A stellar line-up of stars including Ant and Dec, Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley will host fun-filled festive shows starting on Sunday 11 December with a live one hour special and the exciting finale will take place on Christmas Eve,
Both shows will combine surprise studio items with pre-recorded entertainment pieces that will be uplifting and celebrate the spirit of goodwill and good fortune at Christmas. The programmes will bring to life the charities and the Text Santa appeal while encouraging viewers to text donate throughout.
The Text Santa appeal is working on behalf of a chosen group of five national charities and four hospitals for sick children. As well as Crisis, the other charities to benefit from the project are Carers UK, Help the Hospices, Samaritans, WRVS, Great Ormond Street Children's Charity, Helping Hand, Noah's Ark Appeal and Yorkhill Children's Foundation.
