    Don't have time to donate right now?


    It's a terribly shock and massive tragedy that we've lost one of the most amazing people ever. Simon The King King's unique personality had him befriend an astonishing amount of folk by just being him... an utterly authentic charismatically charming, naturally warm and inclusive, highly talented, delightfully belly laughingly funny all round brilliant human.

    It would be wonderful if we could raise enough money to cover funeral costs and hire the local hall to fill with music and merriment. Somewhere to come together to celebrate and share our stories and our love and to say goodbye to this great man x

      This JustGiving page will finish today so I just wanted to say one last time, how utterly grateful for all the donations and all the messages not only Simon's family are but I expect, like me, all his friends are too. All the collective love for Simon has made a beautiful funeral and lively wake possible and so fitting that his many friends made it happen. The remaining money is around £300 ish and I'm hoping this will be put towards Simon's Memorial Tribute in London on November 25th as money raised was to cover all costs...Big Love X

      The money that has been raised here totally surpassed the original target almost immediately and has paid for every aspect of Simon's funeral- allowing his friends to contribute in a helpful and loving way to send him off in style, which is fair to say we did! The love was palpable. It's impossible to say anything to conclude because I am not able to even consider a life without Simon in it. Like so so many, I feel grateful and privileged to have had him in my life and to know that he'll always have a place in so many peoples hearts. Big love

      Basingstoke Crematorium RG252 Basingstoke (3.30) Many of us will be meeting to say our final goodbyes to Simon today and to share our love for this most unusually rare, beautiful human who is held with such huge affection from a massive array of people. It will be really difficult but being amongst others that love him and sharing our grief, love and stories should hopefully help ease today a little... The money that we've all raised has paid for everything, it's amazing. Again heartfelt thanks from all of Simon's family.

      Simon gave support, generosity, love and laughter to everyone he met. It’s an honour to have known him, to have travelled and played music with him. Every memory is a happy one. Thanks Simon, love you

      Simon was a good friend at wesgate school, a big fella with an even bigger heart. It has come as a great shock to hear the news. He has been taken far too young
