Information for monthly mobile donations

If you choose to support The Children’s Trust with a regular gift through your mobile, you’ll be part of monthly subscription service where you will receive a free monthly SMS from The Children’s Trust the day before your gift is due.

When you sign up to give regularly through your mobile, you’ll need to reply to the first message that we send you to activate your gift. Once you have responded to this text, your gift will be activated and your first donation of £5 will be either added to your phone bill or taken immediately from your pay-as-you-go credit. You’ll be charged £5 plus one standard rate text message in the first month. 

Every month, if you’re happy to give you don’t need to do anything and you’ll be charged £5. We will receive 100% of your donation. 

Skipping a donation

If you’d like to skip a month, simply text SKIP to either 70111, 70030 or 70800 depending on which code you receive your monthly messages from. You’ll be charged one standard rate text message. If your phone is out of range or switched off, you don’t need to worry. We’ll only take your gift 24 hours after we know that your phone has received our message. 

Ending your gift

If you’d like to stop your gift at any point, please text STOP to the five digit shortcode you receive your monthly messages from. You’ll be charged one standard rate text message. By texting STOP this means you will no longer receive any future monthly SMS from The Children’s Trust UK. 

How much of my money reaches The Children’s Trust?

Texts will be charged at £5 plus one message at your standard network rate; the charge will show on your bill and the sender will show as a five digit number, not The Children’s Trust. 100% of your donation will go to The Children’s Trust.

All supporters must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending a text message. If you are under 16 years old, you must have your parent or guardian’s permission before signing up to our campaigns.
