Launch Event - 2nd December

The Launch

It has been a long and challenging journey but we made it! We're aiming to have Simon's Place completed just in time for Simon's birthday and would love to share it with everyone who has helped make it possible (and anyone who's interested...the more the merrier!).

Come on down to Help Bristol's Homeless and take a look around! We'll be having a few celebration drinks afterwards at a local pub and everyone is welcome to join us.

12pm - 2pm - Launch Event at Help Bristol's Homeless

2pm - 6pm - After Party at a local pub (details to be confirmed on the day)

If you're coming to the Launch Event, please note there will be a couple of speeches shortly after 12pm, followed by fitting the plaque in memory of Simon. The container will then be open for people to take a look around at their leisure.

***Please note there may be photos and videos taken at the event. These may be used by Help Bristol's Homeless, Simon's Place and the Bristol Post in print and on websites (including social media). If you have any concerns or objections please make these known to a member of the team on the day.***

Key Information

  • The Help Bristol's Homeless site is on Malago Road in Bedminster,  BS3 4JR (behind the car wash) - as shown by the Simon's Place logo on the map.
  • There is limited parking on-site and a small car park off Hereford Street. If you can car share or come by public transport to leave space for those who are less mobile it would be appreciated.
  • As the container is only small, there won't be room for everyone inside at the same time. In light of the time of year, it's advisable to dress warmly and bring an umbrella in case we're unlucky with the weather.
