We are deeply saddened that our ambassador Tom Smith has passed away, aged 50.

The former Scotland Rugby Captain and British & Irish Lion became an ambassador for 40tude after being diagnosed with colon cancer in 2019.  

Throughout his treatment, Tom bravely continued to support 40tude and the mission to cure colon cancer, helping to raise awareness of the importance of getting screened for this type of cancer.

Our thoughts are with Tom's family and friends at this time.  

Your donations will be used by 40tude curing colon cancer (registered charity no.1160500) to fund bespoke, ground-breaking research projects targeted at improving the early diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer.
