Vodafone’s charity fundraising praised by F1 driver

Jenson Button congratulated operator’s staff for raising almost £300,000 for charity through the JustTextGiving £100 challenge

Vodafone staff were visited by F1 driver Jenson Button yesterday, who congratulated them for raising nearly £300,000 for British charities.

Vodafone’s JustTextGiving £100 challenge saw employees try to raise £100 each for charity, with the money given being matched by the company.

Fundraising activities included extreme sports like sky diving and bungee jumping as well as a 300-mile ‘Le Tour De Yorkshire’ bike ride.

With the matched funding, £280,000 has been donated to more than 630 large and small charities across the country.

Button said: “The Vodafone people here today deserve a huge slap on the back.”

The JustTextGiving scheme will continue, with anyone being able to get a Vodafone Individual Code (VIC) to raise money for charity. To date over 50,000 people have registered for their own VIC to use in their own fundraising and over 17,000 charities are now using JustTextGiving. The text to donate is free on any network.
