The Oesophageal Patients Association is a registered charity that was founded in 1985. The charity is solely funded by personal donations and Grants from Charitable Trusts. All donations received go directly to offering support to patients and their families going through and recovering from oesophageal and gastric cancer.

If you would like to make a donation to help fund this vital service you can do so either by post, by mobile phone or online from the OPA's Just Giving page. Thank you for your support. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used wisely in our work.

Donate via your Mobile Phone

You can now donate to the OPA via Just Giving from your mobile phone. We will get 100% of your donation. Simply start a text message with OPAS14 and then add a donation amount of £2, £5 or £10. Send the text message to 70070.

So, for a £10 donation your text message will look like this (there's no need for the pound symbol):
