Stand Out is calling to the events industry to help our long-standing client and friend, Simon Fookes, director of The Amazing Tent Company and Nomadic Spaces.

Simon sadly fell ill 15 months ago and was diagnosed with grade four Glioblastoma (a brain tumour). After numerous rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy Simon is now crowdfunding for innovative immunotherapy treatment in Germany. The treatment has had encouraging results, and Simon is hoping it will enable him to live a long and happy life with his wife and two young children.

The crowdfunding campaign started yesterday and has a goal of £30,000. So far, more than £11,000 has been raised from generous donations from a range of people including Simon’s friends, family, clients and the wider community.

Stand Out is calling on our wonderful industry to help Simon with his plight and thanks you in advance for your generosity. You can donate here.
