Last week we raised £127 between our Sunderland and Durham dealerships for Text Santa! We got involved by wearing our attractive Christmas jumpers for work to help raise money for three amazing charities; Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children. All of the money raised from the fundraising event is split equally between the three charities.
Text Santa has raised over 29 million pounds in the past five years of fundraising helping to give hope to families who are in difficulty. Text Santa helps families who are affected by crisis, to granting wishes to children who are fighting life-threatening conditions and to funding nurses to help patients receive the care and treatment they need. Text Santa supports those in the UK and overseas.
Some of the Text Santa partners who have supported the fundraising event this year include:
- Primark – Primark were selling Christmas jumpers which were available in a range of designs and sizes. Every jumper which was purchased between the 1st and 17th December, Primark made a donation and raised over £1 million!
- InTu – InTu have been raising money across all of their shopping centres in the UK, from making donations from Christmas light switch ons to Santa’s Grottos!
- Papa Johns – every XXL pizza ordered until the 3rd January 2016, Papa Johns will donate 50p to Text Santa!
