How monthly giving works

  • When you activate your monthly gift, your first donation of £3 will be taken immediately and you will also incur one standard network text message charge that month.
  • Each month after that, you will get a free text as a reminder, the day before your monthly donation is due. This text will also remind you that you can choose to skip a month by replying SKIP to that text message within 24 hours. If you're happy to give then you don't need to do anything and you'll be charged as usual. However, if you choose to skip a month, we won't take the donation that month - you will just incur one standard network text message charge for sending your reply.
  • Cancer Research UK receives 100% of each £3 donation.
  • If you want to stop giving your monthly £3 donation then you can text STOP at any time to 70002 or call 0203 282 7862. We will remind you of this every three months.

How increasing your monthly gift works

  • If you are giving a monthly gift of £3 and you decide that you want to increase your gift to £5 during a call from us, we will send you an activation message which you need to respond YES to in order to activate your £5 gift. 
  • You have 7 days to reply to activate your £5 monthly gift. If you reply YES more than 7 days after you receive the message you will be charged at the standard network text message rate for that text but the gift will not start. After you have replied YES your first donation of £5 will be taken immediately and you will also incur one standard network text message charge that month.
  • You can also increase your monthly gift to £5 at any time by texting CAN to 70088.
  • When you increase your monthly gift to £5 this will replace your previous monthly gift of £3, which will be automatically cancelled. You will not pay both.
  • Each month after increasing your gift, you will get a free text as a reminder, the day before your monthly donation is due. This text will also remind you that you can choose to skip a month by replying SKIP to that text message within 24 hours. If you're happy to give then you don't need to do anything and you'll be charged as usual. However if you choose to skip a month, we won't take the donation that month - you will just incur one standard network text message charge for sending your reply.
