Text Giving - it's all change!

Help us to help others with Text Giving

Having only just launched our JustGiving text-to-donate number last autumn, we were told that the service was being withdrawn. So… from 31 March 2019 our new number is 70085 and we’ve signed up with Newcastle-based firm, Donr to launch a new text giving service.

70085 is the number to store in your phone to help us raise funds for our work supporting Lincolnshire farming folk. Text giving with LRSN is a simple and straightforward way to help us to raise funds.

Here’s how:

Just text LRSN and the amount you would like to donate to 70085. You can donate any amount in whole numbers, between £1 and £20 (inclusive) but if you forget to put an amount in the text, we will receive £10 from you. Within 24 hours you'll receive confirmation by text to let you know the donation has been successful.                 

Every penny of your donation (including Gift Aid) goes to LRSN. Remember, you will be charged for your text message, please refer to your network operator's standard rates. Many mobile phone operators support text giving but read our Q and A, link below, to check whether yours does.

Once you've sent your text you will receive a reply to confirm that it has been received, and in a separate email, we’ll send you a link to our online Gift Aid form. If you have a smartphone, click on the link to claim Gift Aid. Alternatively, you can copy the link into a web browser on your PC/laptop or tablet and fill the form in there. You can also click here to go straight to the Gift Aid form.

Please don’t use the old number, 70070 to send us donations, as from 31 March it will not work.

We’ve put together a Q and A document which we hope will answer any questions you have on our Text Giving service. Click here to read or download it.
