Friday 18 December is the Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser, where people from all over the UK don their festive jumpers to raise money and awareness for a great cause.
This year the charity has joined forces with ITV and partnered with other leading charities Macmillan and Make-A-Wish UK. The epic fundraiser culminates in a three-hour television special that airs Friday night where presenters will tally up the country-wide total of all funds raised.
Join in the fun
Taking part in Christmas Jumper Day is easy – to participate, all you need to do is wear your favourite festive jumper and donate to Text Santa. You can join the cause as an individual or a group – why not encourage your co-workers or family to take part?
