Just A Tick to beat cancer sooner

Right now, a tick from you is one of the most important tools in the fight against cancer.

Cancer Research UK moved to ‘opt in’ on 1 July 2017. From this date, we won’t be able to contact you with our latest appeals, breakthroughs and ways to get involved unless we have a tick from you. 

By making this change and only contacting you in the way you choose, we can be more cost effective with our marketing activity. It also means we’re ahead of the game when it comes to any future changes to data protection legislation.

What does a Yes tick from you mean?

You hear from us how you want to, whether by post, phone, email or SMS. You could choose all of these options, or just one or two of them – it’s up to you.

It’s quick and easy to change your mind at any time  - just fill out our short form

You’ll still hear from us after 1 July 2017 – if you don’t respond, you could miss out on hearing about ways to get involved, survival stories and updates on the incredible breakthroughs your support is funding.

Fill in the form below to tell us how you want to hear from us, or find out more about the role your tick can play and why it’s important.

Your details

So we can find you on our system and update your contact preferences. 

To make our fundraising efforts targeted and effective and understand how much you may be able to give, we may research you using publicly available sources.

We may try to obtain up-to-date contact details for you using external sources if you move house, so that we can stay in touch.
