COVID-19 slowed us all down in 2020. But cancer doesn’t stop in a pandemic.

Between April and August last year, 350,000 fewer people than usual were referred due to suspected cancer the UK. At one point, referrals to cancer specialists dropped by over 70%. People delayed going to their GPs with symptoms and many missed out on getting an early diagnosis and prompt, expert treatment.

Around 12,000 are diagnosed with head and neck cancer a year but even now, almost a year since the pandemic began, we’re seeing far fewer people are receiving treatment in clinics. For some who delayed treatment in the first Lockdown it will be too late. But with your help, we can make sure more people beat head and neck cancer through the challenges of Lockdowns and beyond.

We’re raising funds to ensure more people get an early diagnosis and survive head and neck cancer.

Our Missing Cancer Patients Appeal aims to raise £100,000 so we can:

  • Raise awareness of head and neck cancer early symptoms and encourage people to seek help and advice quickly,
  • Fund researchers as they improve diagnostic tools
  • Fund researchers as they develop pioneering treatments such as radiation painting and immunotherapy that improve survival and help maintain quality of life after cancer.

Oracle’s work is more important than ever, and we need your help.

Please donate to the Missing Cancer Patients Appeal and spread the word about early symptoms of head and neck cancer.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Oracle Cancer Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Oracle Cancer Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I am happy for all gifts of money that I have made to Oracle Cancer Trust in the past four years and all future gifts of money that I make, to be Gift Aid donations. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax & Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations across all Charities, it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Oracle Cancer Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
