Leave a legacy

Take the first step with us

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.

How your gift is used to conquer cancer

A gift in your Will kick-starts bold, discovery research into any type of cancer all over the world.

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.

The potential of your gift

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.

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.

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
