For executors and solicitors

If you are administering a Will that includes a gift to Prostate Cancer UK, you may have some questions. We hope you will find the answers here, but if you don't, please contact our Legacy Team.

Prostate Cancer UK's registered charity number is 1005541 and our registered office address is Fourth Floor, Counting House, 53 Tooley Street London, SE1 2QN.

Please contact us by email [email protected] to let us know that you are ready to pay a legacy with the following details:

  • The full name of the deceased
  • Their last address – this will also allow us to prevent any future mailings to their home, as we know this can be distressing at a difficult time
  • Their date of death
  • The Will clause where our legacy is mentioned (e.g. “I give £500 to Prostate Cancer UK”)
  • Your name and address

 

After we receive this information, we will then contact you to provide our bank details and check whether you would like to receive a thank you letter by email or post. If any other information about the estate is needed by our charity’s auditors, we will let you know at that time.

Our current name is Prostate Cancer UK (registered charity number 1005541) and our registered office address is Fourth Floor, Counting House, 53 Tooley Street London, SE1 2QN.
