Weʼre raising £3,000 to help Siobhan’s family and children during this heart breaking time 💗

9 days to go

Don't have time to donate right now?


We are utterly devastated to share our heartache at losing our blue-eyed girl, Siobhan Rose Simmonds.

On the evening of the 24th February, our beautiful Siobhan (Bon, Bonnie) died after tragically choking on food during a family meal. 

Unfortunately, this was witnessed by her young daughter and partner and his son. The whole world has come crashing down for those who adore her.

Paramedics attended quickly but her heart had stopped. They worked hard to restart her young heart and were successful, but for Siobhan it was too late: she did not wake from her coma and was declared dead a week later on the 1st March 2024 at 1447hrs. 

The critical care staff at William Harvey Hospital kept her heart beating as she was an organ donor. She was taken for surgery in the early hours of Saturday morning and donated her pancreas, liver, both kidneys and lastly her heart.

Those of you lucky enough to have met Siobhan will remember the loving nature she inherited from her parents, Bernadett and John. The hospital told us that Siobhan elected to donate her organs at least 4 times during her short life. Less than 1,400 people per year donate their organs in the UK. We take solace in the amazing gift you gave Bonnie! We can't wait to hear the success stories of people and families whose lives will be transformed from your generosity.

Siobhan was a mother to two children, a 14 year old son whom she adored and a 2 year old daughter who, like her mum, is also a fighter, having been born at only 29 weeks. We hope that this fund will contribute to both of their futures and a charity close to our hearts, Mind.

Siobhan was a naturally caring and special person who with her quirky sense of style loved life and life loved her.  Her love of music and her wicked sense of humour made her a loveable person. Her courage and thoughtfulness made her deeply cared for by all that knew her. 

Siobhan would probably hate this post asking for any help with funeral costs but we could really do with anything to help give our Bon the send off she deserves.
