Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that your wishes are carried out and that your loved ones are provided for in the future.

Around a quarter of the funds we need each year comes from wonderful people like you who choose to leave 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, leaving a gift to CancerCare could make an amazing difference to the lives of many more people; people in our community whose lives are affected by cancer or bereavement.

You can pledge any sum of money or a small percentage in your Will – even a gift of 1% could make a real difference.

All your solicitor needs:

Name of our charity – CancerCare North Lancashire & South Cumbria

Registered Charity Number – 1120048

Did you know that CancerCare has a special Will Writing Service that can help you make or amend a Will?

We work in partnership with a number of trusted local solicitors who help our supporters write or amend a Will. They generously offer their services free of charge and instead of paying the solicitor’s fees, the client is invited to make a suggested donation to CancerCare of:

£150 for a basic single Will

£200 for a pair of mirror Wills

When you use our service, while there is no obligation to include a gift to CancerCare in your Will, doing so is one of the kindest gestures you could make and can help ensure that no-one in our community ever has to face cancer or bereavement alone.
