How to leave us a gift in your will

Your gift will make a real difference in the fight to prevent cancer for future generations

"A few years ago, I ordered World Cancer Research Fund’s free will guide. My husband and I used it to help us plan our will.

"We then decided to include a gift to World Cancer Research Fund so we could enable their work to expand and their cancer prevention messages to reach more people. I know my gift to them will be helping future generations."

– Barbara Knowles

Barbara spoke at a supporter event at the House of Commons

"I became aware of the work of World Cancer Research Fund after losing both my parents and a number of friends and relatives to cancer.

"I’ve now really embraced the charity’s healthy lifestyle message – I swim every week, as well as practising yoga, doing Tai Chi and walking regularly with a group. It’s a great way to get to know people and really helps you to be cheerful and optimistic.

"I would like the charity’s work to continue so that their cancer prevention messages reach even more people. That’s why I’ve left a gift in my will. I know I’m helping future generations."
