Leave a gift in your will
Currently 24 people a day die from pancreatic cancer in the UK. This is due to the majority of patients are diagnosed too late for potentially curative surgery. It doesn’t have to be this way. Leave a gift in your Will to Pancreatic Cancer Action and you will help us make early detection of pancreatic cancer a reality – saving the lives of many thousands of people in the future.
Why write a will?
Writing a Will is the only way that you can be certain that your wishes will be followed after you die. Having a Will isn’t a legal requirement, but it’s the only way to ensure that your estate is passed on to the people and charities that you want it to go to. Without a Will, it’s the legal system that will decide who receives what from your estate. By writing a Will you will be able to protect the future of your loved ones. Keeping you in control of where your money goes after you’re gone.
Family and friends first – then think of Pancreatic Cancer Action…
We understand that family and friends come first, so once you have taken care of your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift that will make a real and lasting difference.

The different types of gift you could leave:
A share of your estate
Once you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a gift to Pancreatic Cancer Action. It can be any percentage you like and as this gift is a proportion of your estate it keeps in line with inflation.
A fixed sum of money
Also known as a pecuniary gift, this is a gift of a specific amount of money. If you decided to leave this type of gift it is worth reviewing it from time to time as inflation can reduce its value.
