You can, of course, donate to charity directly in cash or cheque. Please make cheques payable to the “Sussex Cancer Fund” and send to the Fund Manager at the Sussex Cancer Centre (see contact details to the right).
The Sussex Cancer Fund also provides support to the Centre by purchasing equipment for services to make patients treatment that bit more comfortable or improve techniques of treatment. The Staff Wish List itemises equipment that is requested by our Service Managers. You may like to buy a piece of equipment for a specific area within the Cancer Centre/Ward. Please contact our Manager for more information.

Regular Giving is an easy way to help the Sussex Cancer Fund and can be done simply through JustGiving or by setting up a standing order.
Giving by standing order no matter how small is an easy way to make a regular payment to the Fund.
Simply download the standing order form, fill it out and send it to your bank and begin to donate to charity.
If you are not able to print out the form email the Manager by clicking here and they will send you a form.
You can amend or cancel the standing order at any time.
With your help, we really can make a difference for local people in Sussex. Our record shows that most people can be helped, and many cured, with our sophisticated equipment and dedicated team of consultants, nurses and radiographers.

We would advise anyone making or updating a will to seek independent legal advice and your solicitor or other professional advisors can help you arrange a legacy and donate to charity. We also operate a FREE online will service, through Make a Will Online you can make a solicitor checked will for free in the safety and convenience of your own home.
Types of Legacy
This is a specifically-named item left in your Will as a gift, for example, a piece of jewellery or a stamp collection.
These are the first gifts to be distributed after all your outstanding bills have been paid.
This is a straight cash gift of a fixed sum. Your solicitor or other professional advisors can tell you more about this.
Once all other gifts are distributed and debts cleared you may still have assets left over. This is called the residue of your estate. You may wish to donate to charity and leave your entire residue or a share of it to us. Whatever the size of the legacy it will be exempt from inheritance tax as a gift to charity is a straight cash gift of a fixed sum. Your solicitor or other professional advisors can tell you more about this.
The Sussex Cancer Fund have set up a payroll giving scheme to help you donate to charity with ease. If you want to regularly support the Sussex Cancer Fund click on the donate button and your donation can be deducted straight from your salary. Not only is Payroll Giving super simple, but it’s also super tax
effective. If you donate to charity, your donation gets deducted before you pay the taxman. For instance, if you donate £5, only £4 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest
You can also donate by BACS transfer, please get in touch for charity bank details.
