Where do our donations come from?
We are in constant need of funds to keep our work going. Our support comes from many sources, including :
- Patients, their relatives and friends
- Bequests and gifts in memory of patients who have suffered from cancer
- Organised sponsored events
- Grants from drug companies
- Doctors involved with CTRT, who have given a substantial proportion of their fees from private patients to the Trust.
Where do your donations go?
Funds raised are used to finance :
- Salaries for research workers
- Laboratory equipment and reagents needed to analyse abnormal genes in tumours and to monitor and develop new drugs and tests
- Information leaflets and ‘extras’ for patients
- Specialist computer equipment and software
- Journals and other educational media
Administrative overheads are negligible. Your support is vital to the success of our research at Charing Cross and Hammersmith Hospitals.
How does gift aid help?
UK tax payers may ‘gift aid’ their donations, enabling the charity to claim back basic tax from the Inland Revenue. A simple statement that the donation is gift aided, together with the full name and address of the donor, the date and amount of their donation, is all that is needed. Higher rate tax payers can also apply for tax relief on their donations.
You may wish to remember us in your will and ask your solicitor to add a bequest to the Cancer Treatment and Research Trust at Charing Cross Hospital. Should you wish to do so please contact our friendly team at Charing Cross. Our details can be found on the contact page.
