How gifts in wills can make a difference - Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK helps drive many policy-changing initiatives and projects that benefit us all, which wouldn’t be possible without the support from people like you. What better way to ensure they continue this great work supporting future generations than to include a gift in your Will to a charity like Cancer Research UK?

It’s understandable that you would want to ensure that your loved ones are provided for in your Will. By considering leaving a gift in your Will to an organisation like Cancer Research UK you are not only helping to support their life-saving research but also supporting your loved ones in the future. It’s this research into the causes and treatments that can help us remove the fear of cancer for good. By leaving a gift in your Will to Cancer Research UK, you’d be joining researchers, scientists, and other supporters whose vision is a world free from the fear of cancer.

What gifts in Wills have helped to achieve   

For more than 120 years Cancer Research UK has been at the forefront of funding research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of over 200 types of cancer. Cancer Research UK has played a central role in the progress that has led to a doubling of UK cancer survival rates in the past 40 years.

Did you know, 1 in 2 people diagnosed with cancer in the UK survive for at least 10 years?

With the help of gifts in Wills, Cancer Research UK hopes to accelerate progress and increase the number of people surviving their cancer to 3 in 4 by 2034.

The power of a pledge 

Gifts in Wills to Cancer Research UK are vital as they enable long-term projects that lead to new treatments. Here are some examples of how your money would help vital research at Cancer Research UK:  

A gift of £350 can buy special chemicals called antibodies, which can help Cancer Research UK scientists find and target cancer cells. 

Pledging £1,200 could buy a diamond knife, which is used to cut ultra-thin slices of cells so they can be studied under a microscope. 

A legacy of £5,500 could fund a research group at Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Institute for one day. This institute brings together leading scientists, doctors and nurses across the city to push forward improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment. 

How you can help

Gifts in Wills fund a third of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research, that will help beat cancer for future generations. If you’d like more information, need advice, or just need someone to speak to about your Will then please get in touch.
