OCCTOPUS welcomes donations to support the work of the Oxford Colorectal Surgery Department, to spread understanding of the ‘Three C’s’ – colon cancer, colitis and Crohns, and continence, and to raise funds for our current projects.
We have a special fund for our wonderful nursing team, who have been truly invaluable during this very challenging pandemic. The funds we raise supports the important work they do every day. Say thanks or donate to the appeal now.
We are also fundraising for the Colorectal Cancer Nurses, who are hoping for some new technology to help them aid patients remotely and support the Occtopus Patient Support Group. Occtopus has previously funded a patient trolley and stoma training aids for the colorectal nurse and are happy to be fundraising for equipment again. Donate to the Nurses tablet fund here.
You can also contact us for ideas and fundraising tips! Or if you’d rather take part in an organised challenge, see our events listing below. If you are thinking about fundraising for Occtopus please complete this form and we’ll be in touch.
