To give a monthly donation

Text GIFT to 70007 to give a monthly £3 donation to Young Lives vs Cancer from your mobile phone.

After signing up

When you text GIFT to 70007 your first £3 donation will be taken immediately from your phone bill or your pay-as-you-go credit. You’ll also be charged for one standard network rate text message for this first donation.

You will receive a free text message to thank you for your gift and confirm set-up of your monthly gift.

Each month from then on

This is a charity subscription service to Young Lives vs Cancer.

Each month you’ll receive a free text as a reminder, the day before your monthly £3 donation is due.

If you’re happy to give then you don’t need to do anything and a £3 donation will be charged to your mobile phone bill. Young Lives vs Cancer will receive 100% of your £3 donation.

Choosing to skip a month

When you receive your free reminder text, if you’d prefer not to give, simply text SKIP to 70007 within 24 hours of receiving the reminder and we won’t take your donation that month. Texting SKIP will be charged at your network’s standard rate.

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.

Stopping your monthly gift

We hope that you won’t cancel your gift and that you’ll use the SKIP system if you decide not to give in a particular month. However, if you want to stop your monthly donation permanently, you can text STOP to 70007 at any time or call 0300 330 0803. Texting STOP will be charged at your network’s standard rate.

Please note this only relates to the £3 monthly gifts by text, which are charged through your mobile phone bill. If you have signed up to a monthly recurring card payment after speaking to one of our fundraisers or signing up online, you can stop your monthly donations by texting CANCEL to 0786 008 5908. Read the full terms and conditions.
