Ashtead Residents' Association


Simon Cowell - Wildlife Aid

Sad news.

The Residents' Association does not normally promote other charities fund raising via its web site but on hearing the following, we have decided to feature this distressing news and hope our residents will dig deep and donate to Wildlife Aid. It was only on 20th April that Simon gave one of his impassioned talks to residents at our Spring Meeting. Little did we, or he, know the news that would be awaiting him.

From Wildlife Aid

At the end of June, after a routine clinical scan, Simon Cowell, our founder, and much-loved face of the TV series ‘Wildlife SOS’, received some devastating news. He has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of lung cancer that is terminal. 

Over 40 years ago, Simon turned his back on a lucrative City career and founded the Wildlife Aid Foundation, which has become one of the UK’s best-loved and busiest wildlife rescue charities. His sacrifice, passion for conservation, and antics on ‘Wildlife SOS’ secured him a place in the nation’s heart and an MBE for services to wildlife. 

He has devoted his life to saving wild animals that couldn’t help themselves. Hundreds of thousands have been given a second chance thanks to his compassion and dedication. Tragically, for him there will be no second chances.

Now, as his last wish, he is asking for YOUR help to continue his legacy and protect the lives of generations of wildlife to come.
