    Weʼve raised £5,345 to help fund a bird hide for observing wildlife, in memory of Simon Alderson.

    Funded on Monday, 27th May 2024

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Simon had a genuine love and fascination for nature, especially wild birds, often providing the inspiration for the creation of his stunning glasswork. It is clear that this passion lay at the heart of his artistic practice, carefully observing and technically capturing the essence, beauty and character of these subjects in his unique artistic voice.

    In memory of Simon, who departed us far to quickly, following a severe stroke. We are aiming to raise money in the hope that we can provide the funding for a bird hide (bird watching hut) situated within a nature reserve. A befitting tribute to a beloved man that can be enjoyed by those that shared his passion for many years to come.

    I'm interested in capturing the quiet moments we share with nature. A pause for thought in the busy lives we lead to admire our feathered friends.

      We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that donated 🐦 The response was overwhelming with so many heartfelt messages and we smashed the initial target which all shows how truly loved he was. It has been a very tough and surreal year as we try to move forward with someone very special so noticably missing, but we are looking forward to organising this tribute for him. We will update everyone once we confirm a site and build for the bird hide! Thanks again for your support💕
