Testimonials

We are incredibly thankful for Spoke’s support on Soccer Aid for UNICEF and this year we raised a record-breaking total of £13,014,769 for UNICEF’s work helping children around the world grow up happy, healthy and able to play. This brings the total raised by the campaign to more than £60 million since its inception in 2006, which is incredible.

This year, the stakes were higher than we’ve ever known, and the money raised through the campaign could help UNICEF deliver 2 billion Covid-19 vaccines to frontline healthcare workers, social workers and teachers around the world and help children get back to school, beat malnutrition, and get the healthcare they need today and long after the crisis is over.

Capita manages around 60 appeals for individual charities, across BBC Television and Radio, each year. Managed by Capita’s Audience Services division, Spoke deliver an automated telephone donation solution for these services, and the Appeals have raised approximately £1.5 million since 2019. Spoke’s solution ensures an always available means of donation for the audience and contributes greatly to the positive impact the featured charities can make as a result.

Roddy Boyd | Service Director, Capita Audience Services

On behalf of everyone at Soccer Aid for Unicef, thank you so much for all of your support this year. Despite the obvious challenges of 2020, we were delighted to work with you on this year’s campaign, which was our most successful ever. We raised a phenomenal £9.3million which will help us to support children whose lives have become even tougher due to the coronavirus pandemic. We couldn’t have done that without you and the team at Spoke, delivering our first ever IVR platform.”

Sarah Wren | Senior Project Manager, Soccer Aid for Unicef

We were delighted with the work Spoke delivered in managing the various charity donation channels for our ‘Help the Animals’ project.  Spoke implemented the mechanics for viewers to donate by call, online or mobile, resulting in a huge response from our wide audience profile.”

Simon O'Brien | Compliance Manager, Channel 5

I wanted to say a huge and personal thanks for all your hard work on Don’t Stop Believing. The show was the biggest and best Entertainment show in Channel Five’s history and wouldn’t have been so if it hadn’t been put together by an amazing rockstar ready team made up of the very best in the business. It truly was the all-singing, all-dancing spectacular of the summer that we promised and that’s all down to your blood, sweat and talent. I’m very proud to have worked alongside you.
