The Telegraph’s annual Christmas Charity Appeal started in its current format in 1986 and has raised close to £30 million for charities since its launch.

Telegraph readers have a long history of fundraising, say the publishers, including in 1915 for a monument for nurse Edith Cavell, which can be found outside St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, just off Trafalgar Square, as well as setting up the Edith Cavell Trust to help nurses impacted by their war work.

In 1916 during the First World War, Telegraph readers’ donations helped supply three million rations of plum-pudding for British soldiers on Christmas Day.
