Legacy Event - New

Who are Legacy events for?

Whether you're thinking of leaving a gift in your Willl, or just curious about what impact gifts in Wills have on our research, then coming along to one of our legacy events is the perfect first step to find out more. 

Across the UK, we hold a variety of free to attend events that you can choose from - lab tours, get-togethers or community talks.

You’ll be hearing about the latest progress that CRUK is making, our ambitions for the future and how gifts in wills play such a crucial role in making that progress possible. You’ll hear from one of our world class scientists about their own research in the fight against cancer but also from a senior research nurse about clinical trials and early diagnosis.

What's on in my local area?

Get in touch with your Local Community Manager and they'll let you know what legacy events, get-togethers and talks are happening near you.

Will Cancer Research UK expect me to donate or ask me personal details about my Will on the day?

We will not ask for any donations on the day, although we hope our events inspire supporters to consider leaving a legacy gift. The events are to thank our supporters and show how each donation is making a difference. It’s a great opportunity to share our progress and explain how we’re investing in a future where no-one has to fear cancer.

Are these events costly for Cancer Research UK?

Thanks to the generosity and support of many venues, we’re able to host a legacy event at a very low cost. We know how important it is to thank our supporters and show them how their legacy gift can make a difference.

What happens if I’m unable to attend?

If you are unable to attend, please let your Community Legacy Manager know as soon as possible so we can offer your reserved place to someone else.
