How Your Company Can Help

How Your Company Can Help

Your company and staff could make a huge difference and help us to support many more patients across the UK who have oesophageal or gastric cancers. We need help to expand our services and through developing a business relationship with us your company can play an important part and at the same time can deliver its corporate social responsibilities.

Companies can support us through:

  • Sponsorship. We will be pleased to develop tailor made sponsorship packages to suit your company’s aims
  • Choosing The OPA as your company’s ‘Charity of the Year’
  • Organising an event in support of The OPA
  • Support or matched funding for your staff taking part in fundraising events
  • Making a corporate donation
  • Giving a ‘gift in kind’ such as office equipment and computers, from our ‘wish list’
  • Give as you earn

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.
