Simon Wood, the creator of Requiem to Cancer, died peacefully at home at the end of July 2019. He had been fighting cancer for several years as it progressed through his body, ending up with having brain surgery. He was a gentle giant of the tenor line, a quiet and shy man who just loved to sing. Sadly the last year or so had robbed him of being able to participate in most events.
It was Simon’s wish that his body be donated to medical scientific research and his family honoured those wishes. A memorial service marking Simon's life was held on Friday 13th March 2020 in St Paul's Church, Covent Garden - the venue for Requiem to Cancer.

Requiem to Cancer has raised over £68,000 for cancer research as a result of the two events held so far. There is a third RtC event planned for September 2022 in honour of Simon. This has been postponed twice as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020. If you are interested in taking part then head for the Apply page.
