The new Code of Fundraising Practice came into effect in October 2019. The changes are designed to make it easier for fundraisers, charities and third-party organisations to understand the standards expected of them when fundraising.

It’s great you want to fundraise for us!

So..we have listened to your suggestions about fundraising for the OPA and have some exciting news! Our fundraising pack is now in stock!

Oesophageal & gastric cancers are amongst the fastest rising most unpleasant cancers. The Oesophageal Patients Association (OPA) has led the fight against these devastating cancers for over thirty years and is not only supporting the patient, carer & their family but continue working to promote public awareness of these lesser known but rapidly increasing cancers. This will mean that many more lives can be saved through earlier diagnosis and better treatment.

Most of all we want be there to raise awareness, support and provide information to every single patient, carer and their family who is having to cope with two of the worst forms of cancer.
