Terms and conditions


Regular gift

Here are some more details about how you can help Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust by giving monthly via text message.

After signing up

You’ll need to reply to the message that we sent you to activate your gift. When you have responded to the text, your gift will be activated and your first donation of £3 will immediately be taken from your phone bill or your pay-as-you-go credit. You’ll be charged £3 plus one standard rate text message in the first month.

Each month from then on

This is a charity subscription service to Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust. Each month you'll receive a free text as a reminder, the day before your gift is due. If you're happy to give you don't need to do anything and you'll be charged £3, or you can choose to skip a month.

You will be charged £3 a month thereafter. We will receive at least 99% of your donation depending on your network provider.

Choosing to skip a month

When you receive your free reminder text, if you'd prefer not to give, simply reply SKIP within 24 hours of receiving the message and we won't take your donation that month. 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.

See your gifts in action

We want you to see how your gifts are helping, so we’ll sometimes send you links to photos and videos on our website. You can view this content on an internet-enabled phone or computer.

We won't charge you for content but, as with any mobile browsing, viewing could mean you incur charges from your network provider.

Gift Aid

Your gift through this service is eligible for Gift Aid. In order for us to reclaim the tax you have already paid on your gifts and make them worth a quarter more, at no cost to you, see below.

Some important details

Unless otherwise stated, there will be no refunds for the cost of any SMS text made.

By using this service, you agree that we may call or text you on your mobile in the future about our work and how you can help. One important reason for this is to talk to you about the Gift Aid scheme. But if you'd rather we didn't call, please contact our Supporter Care team on 01223 217757 or

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.

Ending your support

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 end your gifts permanently, you can text STOP to 70111 to unsubscribe altogether.

If you'd like to talk to us about giving through your mobile, please call our Supporter Care team on 01223 217757 or
