Fundraising for PCS post merger

As of March 31st 2020, Pancreatic Cancer Scotland and Pancreatic Cancer Action officially joined forces and have shown their collaborative commitment to make the 2020’s the Decade of Change for pancreatic cancer.  

Assisted by our passionate and dynamic community of supporters, we are addressing the urgent need to take more action and increase survival rates of pancreatic cancer through early diagnosis 

You may be wondering: 

“What will happen to my current fundraising page for PCS?” 

“Where will my money be going?” 

“Can I set-up a new page?” 

But fear not, we are here to support you through these fundraising changes, and you can rest assured, that all funds raised will benefit Scotland!

New fundraising pages

Anybody wishing to set-up a fundraising page moving forward will be directed to Pancreatic Cancer Action’s existing platform accounts where you will see both our logo’s and some text to assure you that you’re fundraising for the correct cause! You are of course, welcome to change the main body of the text within your fundraising pages and upload your fundraising photos to make the page as personalised as possible.
