Start in Salford, the creative arts and wellbeing centre up by Pendleton roundabout, has just become one of the first charities in the country to raise funds using Just Text Giving.
The new service is a free service for charities, has no set up or fundraising costs, and no network charges for people making donations. Every penny donated goes to charity. Gift Aid can also be added to donations.
"This is a wonderful way for us to raise money as it's speedy, simple and spontaneous" says Michelle Dennett of Start in Salford "Most people have a mobile phone these days so we expect this to be very popular with our supporters."
Anyone can donate up to £10 using the service. Just send a text to 70070 with the letters SINS00 plus either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 (depending on amount) to make a donation.
