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.
You might find it easiest to set up a tribute fund for your loved one, or encourage donations online.
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.

Where can I send cheques to?
Thank you for you kind support. You can send cheques payable to Pancreatic Cancer UK to our address below:
Pancreatic Cancer UK
3 Albert Embankment
London, SE1 7SP
We’d be grateful if you could fill in and send our donation form along with your cheques. This is so we can thank you for your caring gifts. You can download it here:
If you are not able to download our donation form, please don’t worry. Instead, you can include a note telling us who your donations are in memory of and your name and address, so we can thank you.
Can I apply Gift Aid to my donations?
If you’re UK tax payer and pay enough tax*, we are able to claim Gift Aid, on your own personal donation if you complete a declaration form.
*you pay Income Tax and/or Capital Gains tax at a rate at least equal to the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all all your donations in that tax year, otherwise it is your responsibility to pay the difference.
If you have collected donations from family and friends, each person needs to complete a separate declaration form so we can claim Gift Aid. 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.
