Fundraise at your wedding
The John Lewis Gift List and Cancer Research UK are working together to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. John Lewis & Partners’ free Gift List service gives you the option to add donations to Cancer Research UK. Since launching, The Gift List has helped to raise over £550,000 towards life-saving research.
The difference your money makes
Giving just £5 can help beat cancer sooner. You could kit out one of our ground-breaking research labs with the essential chemicals they need - the bread and butter of day-to-day experiments.
£30 can help improve treatments for patients with lung cancer as this covers the cost of a trial for a day. Finding out if radiotherapy will pack more of a punch to cancer cells means we can stop the disease coming back after surgery. No other charitable organisation has funded more cancer clinical trials in the UK than us.
If 11 people give £50 each we could buy a research tool that is at the forefront of revolutionary science and life-saving discoveries. £550 buys one next generation DNA sequencing experiment, helping to reveal secrets about cancer.
4 people giving £100, could help thousands of people through a very difficult time by giving them someone to talk to. £400 covers the cost of running Cancer Chat for one day.
A love story...
There is no better way to start a new life after getting married than helping others.
Medical Oncologist and Researcher, Matilde has dedicated her life to helping people with cancer and realises the importance of research to one day cure all cancers. For this reason, Maltide and her partner asked for donations instead of gifts at their wedding.
“Research is our future and our hope. The best gift for us is to donate to research, to life, to hope and to love.”
