JULIA'S House children's hospice will be one of the charities to benefit from ITV's Text Santa fundraising night this Friday.
The annual live TV extravaganza is in aid of 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 49 children's hospices across the country including Dorset's Julia's House.
The evening kicks off at 8pm, and will feature many of ITV's best-loved presenters, plus star guests, live performances and special mini episodes of the channel's biggest shows.
This year's appeal will be presented by Ant and Dec, Phillip Schofield, Christine Bleakley, Paddy McGuinness and Together for Short Lives Patron, Holly Willoughby.
