Text donation is an easy and simple way to donate.
If a service is advertised as a text donation service then the
money is taken from your mobile phone account or pre-pay balance
and paid to us by your network.
If you make a text donation to Blind Veterans UK (registered
charity number 216 227) will receive 100% of your
donation(s). You may also be charged for one text message each time
you text us at your network's charity or network rate. Always get
the bill payers permission.
If you have responded to a campaign such as a regular
giving service or you have asked for information about an event we
will contact you as required to provide that service. We'd like to
also contact you with news and information about other campaigns,

message e.g. BLIND NO INFO.
If you contact us by text and subsequently wish to change your
mind about future contact, please reply NO INFO to any future text
