Return Race for Life sponsorship

How to pay in your money

There are many ways you can return your sponsorship money to us.

Unfortunately we are currently unable to receive payments online and over the phone due to maintenance of our systems until mid-January 2017.

There's still time to return your sponsorship from your 2016 event by cheque in the post or at any of our Cancer Research UK shops. Every penny you raise goes towards our life-saving research.


The simplest way is by using a JustGiving page. If you have a JustGiving page for your 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy®, or Marathon event, the money you raise will automatically be sent to Cancer Research UK seven weeks after your Race for Life.

By phone

If you’d rather talk to someone in person you can pay with your debit/credit card over the phone by calling us on 0300 123 0770. Please note that the call centre will be closed for the holidays from Friday 23rd December to Tuesday 3rd January 2017.

By cheque

If you’d like to send a cheque, please make it payable to “Cancer Research UK” and post, along with your sponsorship form, to:

Race for Life
PO Box 1579

In person at a Cancer Research UK shop

Take your completed sponsorship form along to one our shops and pay in your money there - you can pay by cash, cheque or card.

Gift Aid

If you have a JustGiving page then Gift Aid will automatically be added to your total.

If you are paying your sponsorship online, by phone or cheque then we can only claim Gift Aid if we also have your sponsorship form. By sending in your sponsorship form, we will be able to claim at least an extra 25% to every donation at no extra cost to you or your sponsors.

Please send your sponsorship forms to the address above.

Under 18s

Unfortunately, for legal reasons, if you are under 18 you cannot pay in your sponsorship using our online form. Please pay by post or phone us on 0300 123 0770.
