How monthly giving works

  • Once you activate your monthly gift, your first donation of £3 or £5 will be taken immediately and you will also incur one standard network text message charge that month.
  • Each month, the day before your monthly donation is due, you will get a free text as a reminder.
  • This free 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 monthly donation.

A STOP message will incur a standard rate message cost from your network provider.

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 you can do this by texting CAN to 70088.

  • 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.
