How you can contribute

There are various ways in which you are able to contribute to the Sussex Cancer Fund to help us improve things for our Sussex patients.
You can, of course, make a donation directly in cash or cheque. Please make cheques payable to the “Sussex Cancer Fund” and send to the Fund Manger at the Sussex Cancer Centre (see Contact)

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.

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.
A gift to our Charity can help us achieve better things for our patients and enable us to continue to offer the best possible cancer treatment and help us plan future work and projects.
We would advise anyone making or updating a will to seek independent legal advice and your solicitor or other professional advisor can help you arrange a legacy.

Types of Legacy

Specific Bequest
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.

Pecuniary Bequest
This is a straight cash gift of a fixed sum. Your solicitor or other professiona; advisor can tell you more about this.

Residuary Bequest
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 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 a straight cash gift of a fixed sum. Your solicitor or other professiona; advisor can tell you more about this.

Payroll giving
The Sussex Cancer Fund have set up a payroll giving scheme.
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. 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
