It is with deep sadness that we have to inform you that Simon Wood, the creator of Requiem to Cancer, died peacefully at home at the end of July 2019. As some of you will know, he had been fighting cancer for several years as it progressed through his body, most recently 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 has honoured those wishes. There will be a memorial service marking Simon's life on Friday 13th March 2020. More details here.
Requiem to Cancer has raised over £68,000 for cancer research as a result of the two events held so far. It is intended that there will still be an RtC event in 2020 in honour of Simon. Please keep an eye out for further details.
If you would like to make a donation to Cancer Research UK in memory of Simon then please use the Donate button shown on the left. Thank you.
