KIIS FM producer flies to the other side of the world
Matt & Meshel’s social content producer Kieran Simpson made the trip of a lifetime last weekend to bear witness to his beloved Lincoln Town football club take on Arsenal in the FA Cup in London.
After starting a crowdfunding account to get him back to his homeland for the historic matchup, the 25-year-old producer spent more time flying to and from London than he did at the game.
His journey started on Saturday morning flying out from Melbourne and arriving just hours before the match at 5:30pm on Saturday afternoon. To save money, Kieran then slept at Heathrow Airport before flying out on Sunday morning at 6:00am.
Kieran’s sojourn has become a viral sensation with international media from UK and Ireland. He has done several interviews with British radio stations and newspapers, as well as gaining coverage in the Sun Herald and Channel 7’s Sunrise program this morning.
He will donate the additional money raised from his crowdfunding account to the BeyondBlue charity.
Luckily for Kieran, Victorians had the day off on Monday, allowing him some much-needed rest before heading back to work this morning.
