Leading independent producer Novel Entertainment is getting in to the Christmas spirit by supporting ITV’s festive fundraiser Text Santa with its CITV hit property Horrid Henry.


The campaign centres around two live broadcasts on Friday 21st December on ITV1. Horrid Henry’s arch nemesis Moody Margaret will feature on the "Text Santa CITV Special" at 4pm Fri 21st Dec on the CITV channel, revealing her more charitable side and offering her Top Three Tips for Fabulous Fundraising. Horrid Henry, meanwhile, will be lending support to ITV celebrities on the studio floor. The main event will be the entertainment special and fundraiser Text Santa broadcast on Fri 21st December at 8pm on ITV1.

The fundraising drive will raise money for six UK charities (Age UK, Anthony Nolan, Carers UK, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Together for Short Lives and Whizz-Kidz). Text Santa raised an amazing £4,120,000 in 2011 and organisers are hoping to beat that figure this year, with Horrid Henry’s help!

Along with the on screen involvement, Horrid Henry also features in the fundraising packs for Text Santa, which contain individual and group fundraising ideas for children, their teachers, and parents. These have been distributed via schools and are also available in Asda stores across the country.
