Do your bit in a Festive Knit! - Text Santa Fundraising

Here at Gelbergs, Charity work within the community and wider area are what set us apart from other firms. We hold strong belief in helping others, and this year, we thought we'd get into the festive spirit this December by helping those less fortunate!

Text Santa is a national fundraising event which raises money for Macmillan Cancer Support, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children. No one should be alone on Christmas, and no one should go without. That's why this year we've chosen to support these three amazing charities to give hope to familes in difficulty at Christmas, and to put smiles on children's faces.

To do our bit, we're holding a 3-day Christmas 'Jumperthon' from Wednesday 16th December to Friday 18th. This means we'll be sporting our awful Christmas jumpers around the office or decorating old jumpers to fit with the festive season. To take part we'll all be donating money (a minimum of £2 each) to the Text Santa Appeal and will be running a prize for the best jumper alongside! Look out on our Twitter for photos!

To raise as much money as possible, we'll also be holding our very own Festive Bake Sale at our main office in Upper Street. If you're passing by, don't forget to pop in for some delicious baked goods! Come and see us if you're in Islington! For as little as 50p each, you could be walking away with some cookies, cupcakes and more!

We have already begun making the jumper bunting to decorate our offices, and to prepare for the bakesale. Keep an eye on our Twitter, to vote for your favourite jumper!

The Text Santa Christmas Jumper Day show will be aired on ITV on the evening of Friday 18th. Tune in to see how your support will bring hope to families across the UK and abroad. 

If you can't make it down to our Upper Street offices for cake and cookies, you can also donate online. Visit and donate what you can for such worthy causes.

Merry Christmas to all!

Please note our offices will be closed from midday Christmas Eve and will reopen on January 4th in the New Year.
