This year’s Remember a Charity in your Will Week takes place from 10 to 16 September and aims to raise awareness around the importance of gifts in Wills to causes that matter most to you.
Last year, £1 out of every £5 we raised came from gifts in Wills, but many Prostate Cancer UK supporters are still unaware of this type of giving. We want to take this opportunity to tell more people about the importance of gifts in Wills, to continue improving the lives of future generations affected by prostate cancer.
Improvements in diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of prostate cancer, would not be possible without the generous gifts we receive from supporters. However, to continue funding these long-term projects in years to come, we must raise awareness of this type of giving. This is why we would like to share with you the exciting events taking place during Remember a Charity Week, and encourage you to take part and find the answers to life’s biggest questions during Remember a Charity Week.Contact us
This year, Remember a Charity Week has created a human search engine to raise awareness of how supporters can pass on something wonderful to future generations. Users can ask a question about prostate cancer, leading them to a video message left by one of our supporters, a Specialist Nurse or member of the Prostate Cancer UK team. Here, they have shared how gifts can help to fund research, raise awareness and support men while answering big questions about the future of prostate cancer.
Chris Patey is a supporter who has left his message on the HUMAN search engine about his journey with prostate cancer, 20 years on from his diagnosis. Find out more about Chris’ inspiring story via the human search engine or contact us to find out more about the importance of gifts in Wills to Prostate Cancer UK.
“Without receiving treatment for my prostate cancer, I think it’s very unlikely that I would have lived to meet my grandchildren. Including a gift to Prostate Cancer UK in my Will will allow me to help fund the research into treatment, diagnosis and prevention that will ensure more men survive prostate cancer.”
In recognition of Remember a Charity in your Will Week we want to offer you the opportunity to have your Will written or updated for free through our UK-wide Free Wills Network. To register your interest or find out more, simply provide us with your name and address via the contact us button below and we’ll send you details of participating solicitors near you.
There is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to us, but we would be incredibly grateful if you do decide to support us in this special way. A gift in your will can make a real difference to us and allow you to pass on something wonderful to men and their families affected by prostate cancer for generations to come.Contact us
