Become a regular donor
Friends of the Cancer Centre relies entirely on donations from our wonderful supporters and regular donations play a really important part in enabling us to fund projects within the Cancer Centre.
There are lots of ways you can make a regular, monthly donation to the charity and every penny has the power to help thousands of people affected by cancer across Northern Ireland.
- £5 per month could pay for 2 hours of a Friends of the Cancer Centre Clinical Nurse Specialist
- £10 per month could help support a cancer patient financially through Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Grant Programme
- £25 per month could support local research, to give patients in Northern Ireland the latest developments in cancer treatment.
Leave a gift in your Will and become a Forever Friend
Gifts in wills are an amazing way of continuing your support, long into the future. Friends of the Cancer Centre are inviting you to become our ‘Forever Friend’ and help future generations to live healthier, happier, longer lives. No matter how big or small your gift, you will be doing something amazing and helping us fund vital projects, including local cancer research.
There are 3 types of gifts:
1) A share of your estate or ‘residuary gift’. Once your loved ones are provided for, you can leave a share of what remains to Friends of the Cancer Centre, which will be the most valuable gift to us.
2) A cash gift or ‘pecuniary gift’. This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us.
3) A ‘specific gift’ is a particular item that you wish to leave, such as an item of jewellery.
Making or updating a will is straightforward but, to ensure your will is valid, we recommend you use a qualified solicitor. Friends of the Cancer Centre can signpost you to a solicitor in your area and provide you with a checklist to help you prepare all the information you need. To find out more, please contact Ana Wilkinson (028) 9069 9393 or email email@example.com.

Everybody loves payday, but did you know that your pay has the power to support local cancer patients? Payroll Giving, also known as Give as you Earn, gives you the chance to make a regular donation directly to us through your salary. It’s a great way to support us as your donation is made before any tax deductions, which means that you pay less and the taxman makes up the difference. For example, if you want to give a regular gift of £10, only £8 will be deducted from your salary each month and the government makes up the remaining £2.
Getting set up couldn’t be easier, just follow these three easy steps:
Find out if your employer operates the Payroll Giving/ Give as You Earn scheme by contacting your payroll department.
If they do, simply click here, complete the online form and submit. Once the form has been processed, Payroll Giving in Action will forward a copy to your employer who will then arrange for your donation to be deducted from your next available salary.
If your employer doesn’t currently operate the scheme, just give us a call on 028 9069 9393 and we can advise on other ways you can support us through regular giving.
Donations in lieu of flowers
Losing a loved one is an incredibly difficult time and the loss can have a devastating effect on the lives of those left behind.
During this life-changing time, many people find the strength and kindness to use their loss to support other people and other families in similar situations, by making a donation in lieu of flowers.
If you would like to make a donation in lieu of flowers you can donate directly to us, or your funeral director will be able to look after the arrangements on your behalf.
Please do not hesitate to contact us on 028 9069 9393 if you would like to find out more, or if you have any queries.
