CHRISTMAS has come early at Brian House Children’s Hospice as it will be benefiting from a TV charity appeal.
This year ITV’s Text Santa appeal will benefit six UK charities including Together for Short Lives, the leading charity for UK children’s hospices.
The funds raised for Together for Short Lives will support children’s hospices, including Brian House, in Bispham.
In Blackpool and Fleetwood, Brian House supporters will be bags packing at Asda stores on the morning of December 6 to help raise money, and local people can get involved by contacting community fundraiser Lisa Martin on (01253) 359388.
Lisa can arrange for them to be registered online with the Text Santa appeal.
Text Santa’s television special will air on Friday December 21, with many of ITV’s best-loved presenters introducing star guests, live performances and mini episodes of ITV’s biggest shows.
Viewers will be able to donate money via text using JustTextGiving by Vodafone, online through the Text Santa website (www.itv.com/textsanta) and in any branch of Santander.
