Get your Christmas jumpers ready…Text Santa is back!

Do your bit in a Christmas knit by taking part in the Text Santa Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 18 December.  It’s easy to get involved: simply dig out your favourite festive knit, wear it to work and donate £2 or more

TextSantaFull420Last year our staff managed to raise £476 for the Text Santa campaign, which was doubled by the Archant Gold scheme, and again by the Government – so your donations really do help.The money you raise will help three amazing charities – Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish® UK and Save the Children – give hope to families in difficulty at Christmas.You don’t even need to splash out on a snazzy sweater to take part – simply grab a plain jumper from your wardrobe and create your own crafty cracker using tinsel, baubles and homemade snowflakes.

There will be a team of Archant Elves collecting donations on the day so keep an eye out for the Elf in your office. For those of you who are based at Prospect House, there will also be a collection bucket in the canteen.

To find out more about the campaign you can visit the ITV Text Santa website. You can also tune into ITV on the evening of the 18 December for the Text Santa Christmas Jumper Day show, to see how your support will give hope to even more families in difficulty, here in the UK and abroad.

In the meantime, thanks for doing your bit in a Christmas knit!
