Students and staff from The Gateway Academy supported Asda’s fundraising in aid of the ITV ‘Text Santa’ Appeal.
The appeal will benefit six very worthwhile charities including Anthony Nolan, Carers UK, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Together for Short Lives and Whizz-Kidz.
ITV will be devoting their programming to this appeal on Friday 21 December and their evening show will include a host of celebrities including Ant & Dec and Holly Willoughby.
The aim of the appeal is to raise even more than the £4.1 million raised last year. Gateway students and other local organisations helped customers pack their shopping raising £352.53 towards this excellent cause.
