In memory

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 our Senior Legacy Manager Phae Jones or call 01334 477 910.

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

  • Set up an online tribute site
  • 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:

Worldwide Cancer Research
Madras House
St Andrews
KY16 9EH

By phone

Donate with your debit card or credit card by calling our Supporter Services Team on 01334 477 910


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. We could also write to the family or next-of-kin to thank them.

Take part in a sponsored event

Another way to remember a loved one is to take part in a sponsored event and raise funds for Worldwide Cancer Research.
