How can I donate via text?

If you and the charity are based in the UK, you can make a donation with just a quick text. 

You'll need to know the four letter, two digit code of the charity or the fundraiser. Just text the code and the amount to 70070. Within 24 hours you'll receive confirmation by text letting you know the donation has been successful. 

You can only donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 by text, for any other amount you'll need to give online. 

For example, if you wanted to give £10 to the code TEST80, you'd need to text 'TEST80 £10', sending this to the number 70070.                                

What's the cost of donating by text?

It's completely free. There's no cost to you for sending the text and your free allowance/bundle won't be affected - the only charge will be the donation itself which will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your pay as you go credit. What's more, 100% of your text donation (including Gift Aid) will be sent to the charity.

Can I add Gift Aid, my name and a message to a text donation?

Yep, once you've sent your text we'll reply to confirm that we've received it. We'll also include a link to an online form. If you have a smartphone, click on the link to claim Gift Aid and leave a message. Alternatively, you can copy the link into a web browser on your PC/laptop or tablet. 

How can I get a refund for a text donation?

As text donations are charged to your mobile phone bill or taken from your pay as you go credit, you'll need to contact your mobile phone provider directly to arrange a refund.
