Alan supported Christingle by calling on the public to help lift children out of poverty as almost 3.5 million face Christmas living in families who struggle to put food on the table.

Alan Titchmarsh said: ‘Christingle is a way that everyone from young children to grandparents can get involved in improving the lives of children in poverty. They are not only heart-warming events but they are also a wonderful opportunity to help raise money for families who are struggling to make ends meet. Many of these families are living in your community, so make this Christmas count and donate to your local Christingle event.’
