Donate in Memory

Giving in memory of a loved one can help us discover new leukaemia treatments and therapies

Donating in memory is a wonderful way of celebrating and honouring the life of a loved one. Your donation can help us ensure a better future for patients with leukaemia and help them live healthier, more fulfilled lives through our dedicated research. 

We are a small specialist leukaemia cancer charity and every gift, great or small, will help us in our aim of helping cure leukaemia.

Your donation helps us fund research like that of Dr de Boer and Dr Williams at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, working on a potential new treatment for a form of acute leukaemia that affects children.

If you would like to donate to our vital blood cancer research, but are not sure how, there are a few different ways you can do so:

Make a one-off donation in memory

Making a single donation in memory is quick and easy using our online donation form. If you would prefer to donate by post, you can send a cheque made payable to “Leuka” to the following address: Leuka, 52 Portland Place, London W1B 1NH.

A Monthly Gift in memory

Setting up a regular monthly donation will help us greatly. Your support will ensure that we can fund the leading blood cancer researchers of the future in the name of your loved one. Simply click donate and choose ‘monthly donation’. Be sure to tell us a little about your loved one on the form under ‘reasons for donating’. Read more about making a regular donation.

Funeral collection

Many people choose to hold a collection at their loved ones funeral to support our research, often in lieu of flowers. We can send you special collection envelopes, or your funeral director can help facilitate the collection and ensuring donations reach us safely. Please ensure cheques are made payable to “Leuka” and are sent to this address: Leuka, 52 Portland Place, London W1B 1NH. 

Please do email if you would like us to send you collection envelopes.

From skydiving with friends to annual events in memory, there are plenty of ways to fundraise for Leuka in your loved one’s name, by taking part in activities that you or your loved one enjoyed. Have a browse of our fundraising events online or contact our team with your ideas; we can help you make your dedicated event a success.
