OcuMel UK exists to provide information and support to anyone affected by ocular melanoma. We also aim to raise the profile of this rare cancer and encourage new research efforts. Read more about our work.
We are a very small charity trying to do very big things! We keep our costs as low as possible, but we do need help from our members and supporters to keep OcuMel UK going.
If you would like to make a donation to OcuMel UK’s work, there are a number of methods you can use.
Click the image below to make an instant payment to OcuMel UK. You can choose to make a one off donation or set up a regular payment.
If you can spare a regular monthly amount, no matter how small, it would mean a great deal to the stability of OcuMel UK. Regular giving enables us to plan for the future.

Create a donation page
Donations for a loved one can be made by post, by completing a donation form or online, using the link above and writing a note about your donation.
You can also create and personalise a donation page so that friends and family can also contribute in support or in memory of someone special to you.
Tell us about your loved one, their name and why you are creating the page.
Type OcuMel UK as the charity you would like to raise money for.
Log in or create an account with Virgin Money Giving.
Personalise your page with a photo if you wish before sharing the page with your family and friends.
Give As You Earn / Payroll Giving
Another option is to see if your employer has a “Give As You Earn” scheme, also known as “Payroll Giving”, that you can sign up to. If not, you can ask them to set one up through the Charities Aid Foundation.
These government schemes allow monthly donations to be deducted from your salary before you are taxed; making it an easy way to receive tax relief on your donation.
