Text Donations - Terms & Conditions

You can donate £5 to The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity by texting the word RNRMC to 70500. The RNRMC will receive 100% of your £5 text donation. In addition to your £5 donation, you will incur your standard network message charge (based on your service provider rates). Please note that you cannot donate using this service from a Channel Islands or Isle of Man mobile.

Please make sure you spell the keyword ‘RNRMC’ carefully and send your text message to the correct short code 70500. If your keyword and short code are valid, and your text message is received you will be charged £5 via a bounce-back message.

If your keyword or short code is invalid, you may not receive a bounce-back message but may still be charged your standard network message charge. You will not be charged the £5 donation, as you will not be donating to the RNRMC.

All supporters must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending a text message. If you are under 16 years old, you must have your parent or guardian's permission to send a text donation to us.

The RNRMC can reclaim back from HM Revenue & Customs an additional 25p for every £1 they receive from your donation – at no extra cost to you. To enable the RNRMC to increase the donation they receive, please fill in our Gift Aid declaration form at https://vir2.me/rnrmc/

The RNRMC and their sub-contractors, subsidiaries and/or agencies cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever for any technical failure or malfunction or any other problem with any telephone network or line, system, server, provider or otherwise which may result in any text being lost or not properly received.
