Our new website allows us to do this, by showing how our lifesaving work is making a real difference to people in the UK”. For example, registered supporters wishing to use the site to increase their donation will find that their name, address and other details have been automatically transferred onto the donation form after they have completed an initial security check. The site encourages people to donate, share the site using various social media options, and it allows people to leave a message, sharing their reasons for supporting Cancer Research UK. Visitors can click on a person and view a video of them either explaining why they support the charity, talking about the work the donations fund, or explaining how they survived cancer. The site was created by RAPP and is being promoted to existing donors through mail and e-mail. Digital agency Baigent were responsible for some of the behind-the-scenes forms and data management that make the site function so efficiently.  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Cancer Research UK website shows how public donations are spent About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
