Around a quarter of our work supporting local people affected by cancer or bereavement comes from wonderful people like you who choose to give a gift to CancerCare in their Will.

Of course, we understand that when making a Will, the needs of your family and loved ones will always come first. However, once you’ve looked after those closest to you, including a gift to CancerCare can help many more people.

Your gift will mean future generations across North Lancashire & South Cumbria can always turn to us for support.

Gifts in Wills are vital to all areas of our work, so any gift you give, whatever size, will make a big difference.
