Thank you so much for considering a funeral collection for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
This means so much to us and we hope that knowing you are helping to change the future for those affected by pancreatic cancer brings some comfort at this difficult time.
Please see our FAQ section below for more information and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Coronavirus impact on Funerals
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is likely to have an impact on funeral arrangements and during this period, you might find it easiest to encourage donations online or to set up a tribute fund for your loved one.
A tribute fund is a place where you, your family and friends can share photos, stories and memories about a loved one and donate to support Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Collections via a funeral director
Many funeral directors will be happy to collect donations at the funeral and to send them to us on your behalf. They may wait to make sure all donations have reached them before sending them to us, which can take a couple of months, so please don’t worry if you haven’t heard from us.
We would love for you to contact us in the meantime to let us know to expect donations and so we can support you.
We’re normally very happy to supply donation envelopes and purple ribbons for the funeral but we apologise, as we’ve had to temporarily pause this during the coronavirus pandemic.
Where can I send cheques to?
Please download our donation form and send it with your cheques to:
Pancreatic Cancer UK
3 Albert Embankment
London, SE1 7SP
Cheques should be payable to Pancreatic Cancer UK.
If you aren’t able to print the form, please include a note telling us who your donations are in memory of, their relationship to you and your name and address, so that we can thank you.
Can I apply Gift Aid to my donations?
If you’re UK tax payer, we are able to claim Gift Aid, on your own personal donation if you complete a declaration form.
Each donor needs to complete a separate declaration form. We aren’t able to claim Gift Aid on donations from family or friends sent by you without this.
Will all donations from family and friends be credited to our loved one?
We’ll keep all donations in memory of your loved one in a named fund in our records and will be happy to let you know the total donated at any time.
Please make sure that friends and family mention your loved one’s name when making a donation online or via the post to help us do this.
You might like to consider setting up a tribute fund for your loved one for a more visible and shareable record of total donations.
