Fundraising for Occtopus Oxford Colon Cancer Trust
raised of £2,000 target
In memory of Nick Baldev
We provide the advanced tools and training to treat colon cancer, colitis and Crohns


In loving memory of our son, Nikhil Baldev who sadly passed away on 25th June 2023 from colon cancer. Born on 8 January 1983,  “Big Nick” lived life to the fullest and will be remembered as a kind and caring son, grandson, brother, uncle, and devoted friend to so many.

Ahead of the curve when it came to style and always impeccably dressed, he cut a unique and memorable figure wherever he went. He enjoyed watching his beloved Arsenal and was always partial to a glass of high-quality whiskey and a cigar. He loved the Rolling Stones and his day would not be complete without a singalong to “Gimme Shelter”. A budding actor in his later years, he was immensely proud to have starred in Rise of the Footsoldier: Vengeance.     

A truly larger-than-life human being with a heart that matched his stature. Big Nick will never be forgotten and leaves behind a legacy of many cherished memories.
