Giving in memory of a loved one or friend is a very personal way of remembering them - and supporting Worldwide Cancer Research. We can give you advice, information and materials to support you. To find out more please email or call 0300 777 7910.

You can support in memory of your loved one in lots of ways:

  • Set up a Lasting Tribute
  • Collect at a funeral
  • Donate or set up a regular gift
  • Hold an event in memory
  • Participate in a sponsored event

Make a donation online

You can make a single, secure donation or set-up a regular donation online now through our website.

By post

When forwarding donations to Worldwide Cancer Research, please include a short covering letter with your name and address and the details of the person you are remembering. Send a cheque payable to Worldwide Cancer Research to:

1st floor, Canning Exchange, 10 Canning Street, Edinburgh EH3 8EG

By phone

Donate with your debit card or credit card by calling our Supporter Services Team on 0300 777 7910


Collecting donations at a funeral or memorial service, perhaps instead of flowers, can be a meaningful way to celebrate the life of a loved one.

You can create an online Lasting Tribute page to collect donations and let people leave messages of condolence, but we can also provide you with collection envelopes and donation forms. Simply get in touch with our Supporter Services Team and they’ll help you with anything you need.

Set up a Lasting Tribute

Lasting Tribute is a secure online platform where you, you family and friends can remember and celebrate a loved one by sharing photos, videos, stories and messages all whilst supporting lifesaving cancer research that could allow people affected by cancer more time with their families.

A Lasting Tribute page is easy to set up, manage and personalise. You can do it in only a few minutes and add your own stories and photos. It’s very secure and allows friends and family to donate and leave messages at any time.

Create your Lasting Tribute or Find a Lasting Tribute and donate here.
