About the 12 Days of Christmas

£7,150 worth of designer fashion and beauty prizes to be won in our great Christmas giveaway

Over the last 26 years, the Telegraph Christmas charity appeal – our annual initiative with readers to raise funds for three deserving causes around the country – has raised more than £23m to improve the lives of those in need.

Irrespective of the nation’s economic standing or political situation, each year the astonishing generosity of your donations, large or small, singular or repeated, never seems to waver. It is testament to the compassion and spirit of giving that remains central to the Christmas message.

This year’s charities are Heads Together, the campaign launched by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry which supports the work of eight inspirational mental health charities; Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity that has changed the lives of thousands of children and Blue Cross, which provides a sanctuary and medical treatment for injured and homeless animals.

We have started telling the charities’ stories; meeting some of those they’ve helped, and finding out their plans to use the money you raise. And now, we’re offering you a way to donate to these worthy causes – and be in with the chance of walking away with a designer treat as a token of our thanks.

From a Mulberry bag to a cashmere-mix Pringle of Scotland jumper and a laser-cut lace dress from Self Portrait, the label loved by the Duchess of Cambridge, there are 12 amazing Christmas giveaways on offer. To be in with a chance of winning one of the items below, visit www.telegraph.co.uk/fashiongiveaway and make a minimum £5 donation to The Telegraph’s Christmas charities. Your name will then be entered into a prize draw and the winner will be chosen at random. If you’re feeling generous you can enter up to 50 times!, but the giveaways close at midnight on FRIDAY JANUARY 6th.

You can also enter through the web address, above, without making a donation, though this will mean our chosen charities will miss out.
