Charity: OCCTOPUS OXFORD COLON CANCER TRUST
Charity number: 1104702
Description: Oxford Colon Cancer Trust is a very practical charity. Our bye line is 'making new treatments happen'. Whilst national high profile charities fund work on how cancer cells go wrong, OCCTOPUS has a more immediate focus. Originally formed in 2003 it aims to fund practical advances in treatment, education and research in these areas - the 3 C's Colorectal cancer, Colitis and Crohns, and Continence. Such is the speed of progress in this area of surgery that new techniques and high technology equipment are being introduced all the time. Incisions and access to body cavities are becoming smaller and smaller - what is called minimally invasive or key-hole surgery. OCCTOPUS aims to help the colorectal team at the Oxford University Hospitals keep right up to date with and even ahead of these advances, and our patients benefit from the very latest treatment and we educate the surgeons of the future in the most modern procedures.

The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
