Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Thank you so much to all who have donated to CALM in memory of Simon. We are blown away by the generosity of so many people, but particularly by those we don't know and possibly didn't know Simon but have been moved by Simon's story.

We have quite deliberately left the £200 target (in lieu of funeral flowers) as the actual amount raised demonstrates to us how much people do care about the awful statistics relating to male suicide in the U.K.

We propose to leave this page open as long as possible. If you knew Simon perhaps you would consider a further donation to CALM on his birthday (13th April) or at Christmas, or perhaps just at a time when you think of Simon and the good times you shared.      

If Simon had known of the existence of the CALM helpline (0800 585858, 5pm to Midnight) perhaps things would have been different. Please donate to extend the helpline hours and save others from the pain that we as a family are aware will stay with us for a long time.
