About fundraising for the Solas Cancer Support Centre

Your support is the most valuable gift you can give.  Your support will help us to provide the best possible care to people of the south east who are affected by cancer.  The Solas Cancer Support Centre is a charity 100% reliant on income raised through fundraising to support our services.  You can help in whatever way suits you best:  through a cash donation, making a commitment to a monthly direct debit, taking part in a Solas Cancer Support Centre event or even organising your own event.

Every year incredible supporters across the south east get creative and come up with new, fun and interesting ways to raise valuable funds for the Solas Cancer Support Centre. From table quiz nights to sky dives, marathons to school pink theme days, beard shaving and waxing to coffee mornings, each year many of these events are organised throughout the south east raising significant funds to support our work.

Thanks for your support!

Legacies

Leaving a gift in your will, no matter how small, can make a real and lasting difference.

The idea of making a Will is something which may make us feel uncomfortable. Realistically however, it is something that all of us should do at an early age to ease the burden of loved ones we leave behind.

A gift left in a Will is simply a means of giving something back. It provides you with the opportunity to ensure that your possessions and finances are divided up according to your wishes. It is about remembering the people and the causes you care about.

Of course your loved ones come first, but just a small gift in your Will could help the Solas Cancer Support Centre provide much needed support services to people affected by cancer including their family members and carers throughout Waterford and the South East.

Leaving a gift in your Will is straight forward and is something that everyone can do.  We understand that leaving a gift in your will is a very personal decision. Some people choose to let us know that the Solas Cancer Support Centre has been remembered in their will. Others prefer to keep their wishes private, leaving it to their executor or solicitor to inform us when the time comes.

The Solas Cancer Support Centre receives no government funding and is entirely dependent upon the generosity and goodwill of the community to help finance our organisation. Any help or contributions are therefore most gratefully received.
