We raise awareness and funds to help cure colon (bowel) cancer


Andrew's family and friends coming together to celebrate Andrew with the passion he lived by. To collectively complete the challenge of 5,635 miles from Johannesburg to London. To raise awareness and help cure Bowel Cancer.About AndrewAndrew was a family man whose life was tragically cut short by Bowel Cancer on 31 December 2020. He left behind his wife Caroline and teenage boys Oliver, Charlie, and Riley, to follow in his footsteps and carry forward his legacy. He enjoyed a successful City Career, and was widely respected as CEO of Saxo Markets UK and ETX Capital. Andrew was an accomplished sportsman who completed the Marathon de Sables in 2015 and completed the London Marathon twice, the second time post his diagnosis wearing his chemo pump. His oncologist, the eminent Professor Cunningham of the Royal Marsden Hospital, described Andrew as “an extraordinary man, held in the highest esteem by all the team at the Royal Marsden” and “one of the most incredible people I have had the privilege to look after.” Andrew was not aware that he had Bowel Cancer until it was too far progressed. If diagnosed earlier, his life could have been saved. 40TUDE recommends that you get screened regularly for colon cancer, as early diagnosis can and does save lives. The Andrew Edwards Challenge Andrew's family and friends have already raised £130,000 for Charity in Andrew's name. To add to this fantastic total they are proposing a Challenge event on 17 September 2022, where c300 people will come together to celebrate Andrew with the passion he lived by. Collectively we will aim to cover the distance from Johannesburg to London a total of 5,635 miles. Each Team member will set their own Challenge Target and miles during the week of the Challenge will all count. The aim of the event is to raise awareness and funds to help cure Bowel Cancer, of which there are 42,000 new cases each year. The chosen Charity is 40TUDE and we are seeking to raise £168,878 for a dedicated project to train radiographers and increase the accuracy of virtual colonoscopy.

Thank you to many Barclays friends and colleagues who have generously supported and took part in the challenge and fundraising. Those that took part in event (covering 5,635miles over the week of Sept 17th): Kit Newman, Nathan Davison, Dominic Roberts, Helen Field, Gemma Wheat, Gary Saunders, Matt Rogers, Oliver Stringer, Ben Ferry, Peter Joyce, Spyridon Varoutsis, Liliya Lembersky. Thank you
