A gift in your Will could be the spark that ignites new cures to ensure that no life is cut short by cancer.
You could light the way to more lifesaving research.
We fund research into any type of cancer, anywhere in the world. Research that could lead to incredible breakthroughs in how we prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer - and new cures. But we can't fund those projects without your help.
Our loved ones are the first thing we think about in the morning and the last thing we think about at night. Writing a Will is no different. Adding even a small percentage or amount to Worldwide Cancer Research allows you to take care of your loved ones first, last, and always by helping to stop the suffering caused by cancer for future generations.
Being remembered in your Will would be an honour for Worldwide Cancer Research - to find out more download our free gifts in Wills guide.

What is our free Will service?
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.
We have two free Will offers where you can make your Will either online or in person with a solicitor local to you.
What do you need?
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: Third Floor South, 121 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 4YN
Worldwide Cancer Research was founded as AICR – The Association for International Cancer Research. Our original address was Madras House, South Street, St Andrews, KY16 9EH. It was then 10 Canning Street in Edinburgh. Our current address at Third Floor South, 121 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 4YN, is noted above.
Often when we are writing Wills we think about those closest to us. But a Will, much like a piece of music, has the power to touch the lives of so many more.
Including Worldwide Cancer Research in your Will
Work out what you own and what you owe
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.
Decide who you’d like to benefit
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.
Meet a solicitor
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.
"I hope they can eradicate cancer, so there are no more cancer patients in the world. That would be something! It's why I've left a gift in my Will to support Worldwide Cancer Research."
