Gifts and donations

We rely on heavily are the generous gifts and donations of those we are in contact with and are very lucky to be supported by the families and friends of those who benefit from what we do.

These contributions can make a big difference to the support we can provide to older people and their carers across rural West Cheshire.

You can support OPAL Services with a gift or donation in several ways.


You can make a one off or monthly donation to OPAL via our online donation page by clicking here.

If you would like to donate via BACS, please email for donation details.

Cash donations can also be made at any of our OPAL Sessions. Please do not send cash via post.

Cheques should be made payable to OPAL Services (Rural West Cheshire) and posted to OPAL Services, PO BOX 161, Whitchurch, SY13 9BG or given to a member of staff at any of our OPAL Sessions.

If you wish your donation to be used for a specific purpose, please let us know (preferably in writing), and we will make sure that we carry out your wishes.

If you are a UK Taxpayer we can claim gift aid on your behalf on any donation you make. All you need to do is complete our Gift Aid Declaration form.

Simply click here to fill in the form online or here to download and return to us at OPAL Services, PO BOX 161, Whitchurch, SY13 9BG.

Legacy donations

Other ways to support us into the future is to consider leaving us a legacy donation in your Will or to ask your family to make a collection at your funeral for OPAL.  Many who use our services have done this already and their generosity has made a real difference to the people we support.

Once you have planned for your family, you might like to think about making OPAL a charitable gift in your Will.

If OPAL is dear to you, then please consider us, but be sure to include not only our name, but our charity number in your Will.  That way you can be sure your generosity comes to OPAL Services (Rural West Cheshire), Registered Charity no. 1143753.

Your solicitor can give you further information about this and how it could save your family some Inheritance Tax.

Thank you for supporting OPAL. If you would like to discuss any of this further, please speak with any member of the OPAL staff or trustee team.
