Simon Day was born in Leytonstone in 1973. Unfortunately circumstances in Simon’s life resulted in him living on the streets last year, in Southend-on- Sea, Essex. Thankfully at Christmas, Simon was kindly offered a place to sleep and live in a permanent residence, which he accepted. These last few weeks spent off the streets would sadly be Simon’s last and he died on the 1 March 2018 at the age of 44.
Simon’s parents, Andy and Pauline, have generously asked that donations are given in place of flowers at Simon’s funeral and have asked that these donations be given to Rhythms of Life. Andy and Pauline chose our charity as they wanted the donations to go to an organisation that helps people who, like Simon, are affected by homelessness and the associated issues that arise from this.
Rhythms of Life are extremely grateful to Andy and Pauline for this very kind offer in what must be a very distressing time for the family. We would like to offer our sincere condolences and reaffirm that all the money donated will go towards combating homelessness in Simon’s home town of London.
Simon’s funeral will be held on 26 April 2018 at Southend Crematorium at 3pm.
If you would like to donate in Simon’s name then please send donations to: Tanners Funeral Services, 29 East Street, Prittlewell, Southend on Sea, Essex SS26LH. Phone 01702 618358
