St Giles Walsall Hospice will be amongst the first charities in the country to use its own, unique personalised text code, SGWH11, to raise funds using JustTextGiving by Vodafone.
This is a brand new, free service for charities, that has no set up or fundraising costs for charities, no network charges for people making donations and every penny donated goes to charity. Gift Aid can also be added to donations.
From today, supporters of St Giles Walsall Hospice can make donations of up to £10 by texting SGWH11 and either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 to 70070 to make their donation. The text message is free and all of the donation will be passed to St Giles Walsall Hospice.
Cheryl Bradburne, Head of Fundraising at St Giles Walsall Hospice said: “This is a wonderful way for us to raise money as it’s speedy, simple and spontaneous. Most people have a mobile phone these days so we expect this to be very popular with our supporters.”
