Competition terms and conditions

Classic FM Live text to win & donate September 2015

1.   The following rules (“Rules”) together with Global Charities ("Global Charities") general and competition terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) (which can be found at ) apply to the ‘Global’s Make Some Noise Text Competitions’ ("the Competition") which will run from Tuesday 22nd September – Thursday 8th October 2015 (“the Duration”).

2.   The "Radio Station" advertising the competition is Classic FM.

3.   Anyone who enters the Competition (an “Entrant”) will be deemed to have understood these Rules along with the Terms and Conditions and will be bound by them.  The Terms and Conditions are available on request from Global Charities.

Details of the Competition:

4.   To enter the Competition an Entrant must send a text message with the word LIVE to 61812 (the “Text Message Line”). Text messages will be charged at standard network rate. If you text after the closing time you will not be entered but may still be charged. The Text Message Line will open at 6am on Tuesday 22nd September 2015 (the “Opening Time”) and close at 11:59pm on Thursday 8th October 2015 (the “Closing Time”).

5.   After entering the Competition, participants will receive a bounceback text message informing them that a voluntary donation to Global’s Make Some Noise (registered charity 1091657 (England & Wales) & SC041475 (Scotland)) of £3 will be taken automatically an hour (60 minutes) after the time the first text was received, unless they reply with the word STOP.  The £3 donation will be taken from the mobile phone used to enter the Competition and 100% of the donation will go to Global’s Make Some Noise.

6.   For the avoidance of doubt, you do not need to donate in order to be eligible for entry to the competition.  Anyone who replies STOP to the first bounceback message and thereby opts out of donating £3 to Global’s Make Some Noise will still be included in the prize draw.

7.   At 9am on Friday 9th October 2015 a random draw will take place of all eligible entries received between the Opening Time and the Closing Time to determine the winner.  All winners will be required to talk to the presenter/s and a call will be recorded with the presenter/s which may be played on-air.  If the entrant fails to answer their phone, are driving, or if any fault occurs immediately prior to or during these calls and it is not possible to re-establish contact with the caller, another contestant will be selected at random.  The producer’s decision is final.


8.   You must be over 18 to enter the Competition.

9. Entry is restricted to ten entries per mobile number. Additional entries will not be counted but may still be charged.
