Details of the Competition:

4.     To enter the Competition an Entrant must send a text message with the word SUN or SAND (depending upon station) to one of the following radio stations shortcodes: Classic FM 61812 (SUN), Smooth 65588 (SUN), Gold 65588 (SAND) (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.

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.
