Fans Text-to-Win for a spot at Ed Sheeran’s intimate gig: ‘For One Night Only’


On 11th October 2022, Ed Sheeran played an intimate gig at London’s Union Chapel as part of Will Young’s Wellstock x ‘For One Night Only‘ event.

The global megastar performed for just 400 lucky fans at the special venue. No tickets were sold for this one-off performance. The lucky few in the audience were the winners of a prize draw, with nearly half a million fans trying to win tickets. 

Fans were able to enter the charity prize draw to support Shout via text, post or online, making a £10 donation. Fonix is proud to have been part of this and provided the SMS donation mechanic and winner-picking technology. 

Ed’s performance has raised more than £200,000 for Shout’s mental health text support service,  “the UK’s first and only free, 24/7, confidential mental health text support service, powered by Mental Health Innovations.”
