Spread the word

Thank-you for helping PCRF raise much needed funds to support research into pancreatic cancer.

To ensure you raise as much money as you can - and to help more people hear about pancreatic cancer and Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund - please spread the word about your fundraising activity as widely as possible.

Here are some handy tips and templates to download to get you started:

  1. Create an online sponsorship page. It's simple to do via the Justgiving website and makes it easy for people to sponsor you. Go to to set up your page, then promote it by email, Facebook, twitter or myspace.
  2. Send a press release to your local media - download a template here.  Contact our PR agency (0113 258 9880 or for help with your release and for media contacts in your local area.
  3. Take photos and - if you can - some video on the day - to send to local media and to us for our website.
  4. Include the key facts about pancreatic cancer in everything you write. (3% survival rate; no improvement in the rate in 40 years; receives less than 2% of national spend on cancer research).
  5. Mention Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund as much as possible - unfortunately local media often miss out this key bit of information or get our name wrong and we lose an opportunity to let more people know about us!
  6. Publicise your fundraising at work by contacting your company/ organisation's PR team.
