Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. We build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live. Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience. Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support. Cancer in young people is rare but we want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried. We rely solely on donations to fund our vital work. You can help transform the lives of young people with cancer. Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org to find out how.
Cahonas Scotland exist to increase the availability of and facilitate access to information and support services geared to the needs of men experiencing cancer and life limiting disease. To advance education of the public in matters relating to male cancers and to undertake where necessary the prevention of discrimination and stigma arising from diagnosis and the cancer experience.
SAMH is Scotland’s leading mental health charity. In Scotland 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem and each day 2 people die by suicide. We work to combat stigma and campaign for better mental health. Help us take positive steps towards a mentally healthy Scotland - www.samh.org.uk

He was known as “The Voice of Rugby” not just because of the beauty of his tone and the delight of his imaginative phrasing, but because he portrayed our game as we would always wish it to be. The Charitable Foundation has been set up to raise funds to support the development of rugby and its values and also to recognise the contribution Bill Mclaren made to rugby through education and the development of an interpretative centre including Bills extensive archive including his big sheets.
