CEDIA’s Charity Cycle

CEDIA’s Charity Cycle

Published: Tuesday, July 11, 2017

CEDIA is planning to host a charity cycle ride on Saturday 16th September to commemorate five colleagues who the industry lost over the last two years. Suzanne Collin, Carmen Greenway, Bob Hobson, Alan Roser, and Peter Lawn are sorely missed by many within the industry and this event is the opportunity to remember these dear friends and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support in their memory.

“We work in a very close industry, where colleagues become friends” comments Matt Nimmons, Managing Director of CEDIA. “So we were all extremely saddened by the loss of Suzanne, Carmen, Bob, Alan, and Peter. We wanted to find a way to remember our friends, and knowing that there are many keen cyclists in our industry, we thought a cycling sportive would be a nice way of doing so.”

The charity event will take place around Grafham Water Park in Huntingdon. There will be two separate routes – a 50-mile cycle sportive style event for the more seasoned cyclists, and a 9 mile fun ride around the reservoir for anyone who wishes to come and join the fun.  A post ride celebration and get together will allow all participants and supporters to swap tales of their adventures on the day.

CEDIA is designing a commemorative cycling shirt for the event. The association is offering companies within the industry the opportunity to sponsor these shirts.

Money will be raised via tickets for the event. Those who wish to take part in the 50-mile ride will be charged £50 – which will include the commemorative jersey – while the fun riders will pay a £5 fee., and £25 for the cycling shirt. For those who would like to get involved with the charity, but are unable to attend the event, CEDIA has set up a JustGiving page (http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cedia-emea) where money can be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.  CEDIA also encourages cyclists to do their own fundraising around the event and direct people to the JustGiving page.

Macmillan is a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It’s not only the patients who live with cancer: carers, families and communities also need help coping. Macmillan provides support every step of the way, through funding nurses and other specialist health care professionals, along with building cancer care centres. They also allow those affected to have non-medical care, such as practical support at home, helping give a main carer precious time off, or a lift to hospital. People can also benefit from financial help to cope with the extra costs cancer can bring, so Macmillan gives benefits advice, and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs.
