After a successful five year run in which Text Santa has raised over £32 million, for 25 charities, we’ve taken the decision to bring Text Santa to a close and look at developing a new all-year-round appeal for the future.

A huge thank you to everyone who has generously supported Text Santa over the years. Your time, money and support has enabled the charities involved to make such a difference to helping those in difficulty.

100% of public donations has been passed onto our charities each year.
