Paul Simpson

Rotary Becket regrets to have to inform its friends and fellow Rotarians of the sudden and untimely death of Past President Paul Simpson, a member of the Rotary Club of Northampton Becket.


Paul died on Saturday 12th September following a road accident during his solo attempt to walk Offa's Dyke raising funds for Rotary Becket's Charitable Trust Fund which is supporting Food Banks in Northampton.

Many will have known Paul as he was President of our club in 2018/19 and chaired the Dragon Boat Race committee for over 6 years. Paul was committed to helping others. We have lost a valued and highly regarded member in tragic circumstances while supporting the work of Rotary.


Paul leaves his wife Jane, two Children, Helen and Graham, and four Grandchildren. Our thoughts are with them.

Paul's Total Giving Page is still open for anyone who would like to contribute to his fundraising efforts in his memory at the link
