Lasting Life – Charity Dinner



Lasting Life pebbleLast night I was honoured to be invited to the charity dinner to celebrate the launch of Lasting Life The Simon MacCorkindale Legacy.  Although I was somewhat nervous, everyone was there to celebrate Simon, raise awareness for the charity and to look to the future.  It’s always good to hear lot of wonderful things about Simon, he touched many lives in different ways.

The night was rather emotional, but you could feel the love in the room for Simon and Susan as well.  There was also lots of fun and some singing and dancing.  It was very well organised and perfect way to celebrate the start of this new adventure.

We were given a pebble with a carved heart representing the stacked pebbles in the Lasting Life logo.

For me personally it was the best possible way to start off our year of Simon.  My year just started a day early.

Thank you, Susan, for the invite

Memorial



A memorial for Simon was held today at the Actors Church, St Paul’s in Covent Gardens. I was honoured to be invited and able to attend to represent Simon’s fans.

It was a very moving service with everyone in agreement at how approachable, kind, caring, hard-working and passionate Simon was and how he adored Susan.

A very fitting tribute to Simon.

Happy birthday Corky, you are still missed

Simon News – Memorial



I’ve had a number of people ask about Simon’s funeral, I can give the following information:

There will be a private service, for family and friends only in the very near future.

There will also be a memorial at a later date (possibly later this year, but could be in the new year) which we can do something for, most probably flowers.

I’ll let everyone know further details as soon as I am aware of them

Edit 15th January 2011:  As of yet, nothing has been arranged

Simon News – New Tricks – Update



The new series of  New Tricks is due to air in September.

Looking at Digiguide the first episode will air 10th September, as Simon said his was the second episode so it should air on the 17th September 2010, unless they’ve changed the running order.

Edit: Simon has said his role is very small.

Update 17/09: Simon’s episode will be 8th October, so a little bit more of a wait:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/proginfo/tv/2010/wk40/fri.shtml#fri_tricks
