Thank you for watching and donating to the Text Santa appeal - we hope you enjoyed the show! So far Text Santa has raised a fantastic £5,005,000, (and rising!) which is to be divided between Anthony Nolan and the five other charities.
We’re thrilled to have been part of the Text Santa experience; the money raised will mean we can add at least 8000 more people to our register, who will save many more lives in the future. It’s also been a fantastic opportunity to make millions of people across the UK aware of our lifesaving work and the importance of the donor register.
