Being remembered in your Will would be an honour for Worldwide Cancer Research. It is a declaration of your wish to see the day that no more loved ones are lost to cancer. It is the first step towards finding the lifesaving cures of tomorrow, today.
We don’t spend money on bricks and mortar or electricity bills. Instead, all our research funding goes directly to giving our scientists more time to find the lifesaving cures of tomorrow, today.
Loved ones are the first thing we think about in the morning and the last thing we think about at night. Writing your Will is no different. Adding a small percentage or amount to Worldwide Cancer Research allows you to take care of your loved ones first, last and always by ending the suffering caused by cancer for future generations.
We offer a free Will writing and review service. This allows you to easily write or update a simple Will – and it won’t cost you a penny. You don’t have to include a gift to Worldwide Cancer Research, but of course we’d be extremely grateful if you did.
If you'd like to find out more or to register your interest in our Free Will Service, chat to one of our friendly Supporter Experience team on 0300 777 7910 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To leave a gift in your Will to Worldwide Cancer Research, all you need to provide your solicitor with is:
Name of charity: Worldwide Cancer Research
Registered charity number: SC022918
Address: 1st Floor, Canning Exchange, 10 Canning Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8EG
Worldwide Cancer Research was founded as AICR – The Association for International Cancer Research. Our previous address was Madras House, South Street, St Andrews, KY16 9EH. Our current address at 10 Canning Street in Edinburgh, is noted above.
Start by jotting down a list of your assets and their estimated value. Assets like property, shares, savings, and other items of value that you own, including jewellery, cars and antiques. Next, consider what you owe. This may include your mortgage, loans or bills. Take what you owe away from your assets and this will give you an idea of the value of your estate.
Think about the family and friends you may wish to remember in your Will, before considering the causes you care about. Then decide how you’d like to divide your estate.
Most people choose trusted family members, friends or their solicitor to be their executor and ensure that their wishes are carried out.
Once you’ve decided what your wishes are, contact a solicitor to get your Will written. We can also put you in touch with a local solicitor through our Free Will Service.
Survival rates have doubled in the 40 years since our charity was founded.
Our founder, Dr Colin Thomson, set out to conquer cancer in his lifetime. Tragically, he died of it. His legacy is our mission.
So although we're a Scottish based charity, the funds you help us raise will be invested in research projects worldwide.
