"An unsung hero of our movement, Simon Baker, has died too young. He was a brilliant filmmaker who gave his time and talent to our cause" - Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party

As you all know Simon was the principal voice of EL4C and recently founded 'Labour Voices'. He was a huge creative talent and, crucially, gave so much of that talent and his time to help make a difference to people’s lives through his work for the Labour Party. His legacy is certain, but tragically cut short.

Simon leaves behind a partner and a young son. After Simon's sudden death we want to ensure they are protected financially. Simon worked freelance and the loss of his income will hit his family hard.

We need your donation to help Simon's family pay their bills and rent to secure their home. 

"There are people in our movement who want neither glory or fame. They're just utterly dedicated to a better world. Simon Baker was like this" - Laura Pidcock MP
