How your gift will be used to end cancer
A gift in your Will sparks lifesaving research projects into any type of cancer, anywhere in the world.
We know that by starting new cures, one day we will end cancer. Our projects lead to lifesaving advances in finding better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. But we can't fund those projects without your help.
Gifts in Wills are the spark that ignites cancer cures
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 generations to come.
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.

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.
