Rebecca's fundraising year in memory of her father

“My father, Jeff, was diagnosed with stage 1 tongue cancer undergoing major surgery followed by radiotherapy in the belief that he would be cured of the disease. In that time, he and my mother had planned holidays together travelling to Japan and to Florida as a family with his grandchildren, and were planning lots of adventures ahead. That was until it was cruel enough to re-emerge as stage 4 cancer that had spread to his neck within two months of him ringing the ‘Rainbow Bell’ signalling the end of his radiotherapy treatment at The Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff. We tried everything to help my father and even visited The Royal Marsden Hospital in London in the hope that we could find a treatment to help him. Even with the prospect of living with incurable cancer, he took everything that they could possibly throw at him and he wanted more. In the end, his body was too weak to withstand it.

“Cancer is a cruel disease but there is something very devastating and physical about head and neck cancer that causes great discomfort for not only patients but also carers and their families. It was very distressing for my father and for us seeing the cancer grow and eventually take over his neck making it impossible for him to eat and, in the end, breathe. My father is deeply missed and leaves a massive hole in our lives. If love could cure cancer he would still be with us but unfortunately there is still a way to go to treating and curing it.

“At his funeral in March we asked everyone to wear red in his memory - my father was a lifelong Manchester United supporter and we are deeply touched that donations from his funeral alone have raised over £4,500 to date.

“In memory of my father we have all got together as a family and set ourselves a target of £10,000 to raise for Oracle Cancer Trust. In 2019 our fundraising kicked off with the Swansea Half-Marathon and follows by a trek in the Pyrenees, skydiving and, in 2020 we are walking the Welsh Three Peaks with the climax being a visit to Everest Base Camp in October. Raising this money won’t bring my father back but I hope it will in some way go towards helping others.”

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.
