Our new campaign shows everyone has a part to play.

And every part supports life-saving research. 

Play your part campaign poster

1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime.* Our new advert and campaign show that everyone has a part to play in supporting the vital research that will help beat it.

In the last 40 years cancer survival in the UK has doubled and every day we’re learning ways to better treat, diagnose and prevent cancer.

Cancer is relentless. But so are we.

So whether you donate a monthly gift, take on a 5k run, pledge to leave a gift in your Will, volunteer your time, or work in research, we all have a part to play. And every part is important.

Play your part and together we will beat cancer.

*Ahmad AS et al, British Journal of Cancer, 2015
