About Us

The Jamie Simpson Trust is a small charity that was set up in memory of Jamie who lost his life on the 22nd March 2008 during a robbery at the Matalan store in Dalston, London where he was the duty manager. The trust was set up to provide support to enhance the lives of young people helping them to make positive life choices. Our mission is to create an environment for disadvantage children and young people; providing them with the opportunity to excel and explore new possibilities. Jamie's family and friends took up the challenge of supporting disadvantage young people from a variety of back ground in his memory so that a positive outcome could be gained from the tragedy and trauma of losing him.
