On your marks, set, ho ho ho! - Clothes Aid 2024

On your marks, set, ho ho ho!

The days are drawing in, and winter is well and truly on its way, so we hope it’s not too early to mention Christmas, but this year we have some very exciting news…

Do It For Text Santa – The Santa Run (Sunday 6 December)


We’re delighted that two of our fantastic partner charities, Macmillan Cancer Support and Make-A-Wish® UK are being supported by ITV‘s Text Santa this December, along with another worthwhile charity, Save the Children. Together they’re raising funds to bring hope to families in difficulty at Christmas.

There will be plenty of fantastic opportunities to get involved in this year’s Text Santa appeal and we would like our supporters to join us by entering a team in the Do It For Charity Text Santa Run. On Sunday 6 December thousands of Santas will take to Victoria Park in London to run either 5k or 10k.

The Do It For Charity Text Santa Run is a perfect opportunity for you and your friends, family or colleagues to have some festive fun, and you’ll be helping three charities make a difference to families both in the UK and abroad at Christmas!


Click here to sign up now for this fantastic event, you’ll receive all the fundraising support you need and receive a free Santa suit to run in on the day. Watch this handy video about how to get involved in this year’s Santa Run – we’ll see you on the start line!
