Sky Mobile asks its customers to donate spare data to fund NSPCC's Childline service over Christmas

Sky Mobile has teamed up with children’s charity, the NSPCC, to ask its customers to help fund the charity’s Childline service over the Christmas period by donating their spare data, which Sky Mobile will then turn into a monetary donation for the charity.  

According to Sky Mobile, its customers have saved on average 93GB of data each, from their unused data automatically rolling over to their Sky Piggybank every month. From today, they will be able to help fund the NSPCC, providing support to children across the UK. By heading to the My Sky app, customers can contribute either 5GB, 20GB or 50GB, with no limit on how many times they can donate. Customers have until 22 December to donate their data. 

Sky Mobile is hoping to reach 144,000GB of donations, which, when converted to cash, will fund two days of the NSPCC’s Childline service over the Christmas period. 

“We know that for many children Christmas can be really tough,” said
Mike McGrath, Head of Partnerships at the NSPCC. “It can be especially difficult for those who are struggling with their mental health or are in homes that are unsafe. Last year we saw a record number of children get in touch with us about loneliness.  

“When a child needs help Childline can be a lifeline. This generous donation from Sky Mobile customers will help Childline counsellors to answer a child’s call for help this Christmas. Thanks to this support, the NSPCC can be here, ready to listen to children across the UK.”

Sky Mobile customers can donate their data via the MySky app or at www.sky.com/nspccdonation
