Two things come to mind. You can change your locale to one of the en_US 
varieties. Probably not what you want to do. The other is to install the 
appropriate en_GB OpenOffice.org I18N langpack. O_o.org out of the box only 
has built in for en_US, but there are langpacks available for many others.

A quick perfunctory perusal of the ports tree and I didn't see these. 
Possibly this might be useable:
