Ways to support Cancer Research UK
You can help raise money for Cancer Research UK by giving regular donations of £2 or more a month. They currently have over 1 million regular donors giving over £5million pounds each month. Research is expensive and requires long-term funding so every one of these donations is invaluable.
Another way to give is via their Give in Celebration website http://www.giveincelebration.org.uk/ . It allows you to celebrate a special occasion while supporting Cancer Research UK by instead of receiving presents at your event (Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary, or other special event) you can ask friends or family to make a donation to the charity. They can donate via the website, by phone or by cheque. You may also consider leaving Cancer Research a Legacy (leaving a gift for Cancer Research UK in your will).
