How monthly giving works 

When you activate your monthly gift, your first donation of £5 will be taken immediately and you will also incur one standard network text message charge that month.

Each month after that, you will get a free text as a reminder, the day before your monthly donation is due. This text will also remind you that you can choose to skip a month by replying SKIP to that text message within 24 hours. If you're happy to give then you don't need to do anything and you'll be charged as usual. However, if you choose to skip a month, we won't take the donation that month - you will just incur one standard network text message charge for sending your reply.

Lepra receives 100% of each £5 donation.
