Will you make a cure for pancreatic cancer your legacy?

Thanks to supporters, we’ve invested over £7.2 million into pancreatic cancer research to date. Leaving a gift in your Will means we can continue investing into world-leading research far into the future. With your help we can find new ways of diagnosing and treating the deadliest common cancer.

Frequently asked questions about gifts in Wills

What type of gift can I leave?


There are a number of different types of gifts to choose from, but the two most common are known as Residuary Gifts and Pecuniary Gifts.

It’s important that you choose the type of legacy that works best for you and your circumstances. Please do take advice on this from your solicitor or financial advisor if you are unsure.

  • Residuary gift

This is a percentage of your estate after all other gifts and expenses have been paid. Even a small percentage of your estate can transform the future for those affected by pancreatic cancer.

  • Pecuniary gift

This is a gift of a set amount of money from your estate.

What wording should I use?


We recommend that you speak to a solicitor who will advise you and help with the wording of your gift.

You will need to give your solicitor our registered address and charity numbers and they will do the rest.

Pancreatic Cancer UK, Westminster Tower, 3 Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7SP

A registered charity in England and Wales (No. 1112708) and in Scotland (SC046392).

If you prefer, you can take the following wording to your solicitor. They will make sure your will is valid and that your wishes are followed.

Pecuniary Gift

‘I Leave _____ to Pancreatic Cancer UK of Westminster Tower, 3 Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7SP. A registered charity in England and Wales (No. 1112708) and in Scotland (SC046392).

This form will be read alongside your Will and allows you to make changes to your Will, without having to rewrite it. Please talk to your solicitor for more information on writing a codicil.

How can I let you know that I've made a gift in my Will?


Thank you so much for making the decision to leave such a valuable gift. Your gift will help us to continue being there for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer and continue our ground-breaking research into early diagnosis and treatments.

You don’t have to tell us that you’ve left a gift in your Will. But letting us know helps us plan our future investments, and we’d love to be able to thank you!

You can let us know by filling in our simple form.

I'm transforming the future

Pancreatic Cancer took away the two people I loved the most. My hope is that the gift in my Will goes on to prevent other families and couples from being torn apart by this terrible disease.
