Making a donation via SMS

All you need to do is send a text message from your mobile phone to a special, five-digit text message number. The donation gets added to your pay monthly bill or taken off your pay as you go credit.

A one-off donation by text can help our Research Nurses continue to provide lifesaving support to blood cancer patients across the UK.

Your support means that we can continue to be there for the 250,000 people currently living with blood cancer .

You can donate in a quick and easy way by texting a keyword to one of the donation numbers listed below.

Our current text service provider is Donr. They can be contacted on 0333 4444 111.

You can choose one of the following options:

To donate £3.00, text 3CURE to 70450

To donate £10.00, text 10CURE to 70450

To donate £20.00, text 20CURE to 70450

Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message.
