Make a donation to our life-saving work just by using your mobile phone!


It's very easy, all you have to do is text SAVE082 to 70070 to donate £2.

Your donation will help more people to be the difference between life and death in an emergency.

Thank you so much for making a donation to St John Cymru Wales

How does it work?

You can donate £2 to St John Wales by texting SAVE082 to 70070.

All the money you donate goes to us, and your network provider does not charge you for the SMS you send to make the donation.

The Text donation scheme is run by a company called JustTextGiving on our behalf.


What is JustTextGiving?

JustTextGiving is a partnership between Vodafone and JustGiving, supported by The Vodafone Foundation. You can find out more at

Can I give a different amount?

You can donate to our St John Wales by texting SAVE08 followed by the amount you wish to donate, to 70070.

You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10. As an example, to donate £5, you would text the following to 70070: SAVE08 £5

How much of my donation does St John Wales receive?

100% of the amount you donate comes to St John Wales.

How much does the text message cost?

Your network provider does not charge you for the SMS you send to make the donation, you only pay for the donation.  The amount you donate will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your pay as you go credit.

What about Gift Aid?

For every £1 you donate we can claim an extra 25p from the government when you add Gift Aid!

We'll send you a link in a text message confirming your donation. If you have a smartphone, click on this link to add Gift Aid. Alternatively, you can copy the link into a web browser on your PC.

Can I donate from outside the UK?

You can only make a text donation abroad if you contract with a UK mobile operator. Some overseas text message costs may be applied. If your phone operates on a non-UK mobile phone network you cannot make a text donation using JustTextGiving. This also includes anyone visiting the UK and roaming on a UK network.


Sadly we are unable to process refunds for text donations. These donations are passed to us by the mobile phone operator and aren't actually processed by St John Wales.

Please your mobile operator if you require a refund, but please note that refunds are at their discretion.
