AC-ET Announce Charity Cycle Ride In Memory Of The Late Kevin Fitz-Simons

June 2015

AC Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) are hosting a two-day charity cycle ride between their High Wycombe and Leeds sales offices on 18-19 July 2015, to raise money in remembrance of their beloved colleague, the late Kevin Fitz-Simons.

Kevin held an important senior role as Northern Lighting Sales Manager in AC-ET's Leeds office. He was an extremely well liked and respected colleague, and a larger than life character. During his diverse career spanning over 30 years, Kevin built up an incredible number of customer relationships and friendships. He sadly passed away on 31st December 2013, aged 53.

This event - known as the 'Fitz-Simons Challenge' - is being organised by Stuart Burdett, Technical Sales Executive for AC-ET's Video product division. It will raise funds for two great charities which would have met with Kevin's approval, and aims to secure a minimum of £1,000 in sponsorships.

The charities are Shelter, which is dedicated to helping millions every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness; and WaterAid, an international charity whose vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation.

It is an un-timed event aimed at Kevin's industry friends and colleagues, suitable for both club and non-club riders. The cycle ride will start in Leeds on July 18 (8am), stopping overnight at a halfway point, and finishing in High Wycombe on July 19, covering a distance of approximately 180 miles.

Those participating in the event will be responsible for providing their own bicycle and all associated clothing / accessories. Places are limited, and will therefore be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
