Dementia Help’s managing director Christina Neal and co-director Peter Berry (who has early Alzheimer’s) are cycling 330 miles across the UK from Wales to Aldeburgh from 25th to 30th June to raise vital funds for YoungDementia UK – our route is above. There are over 42,000 young people (under the age of 65) diagnosed with a form of dementia in the UK, and many more thought to be living with the condition yet not diagnosed. Our co-director, Peter Berry, had to give up his family business when he was diagnosed as he was unable to run the company he had successfully grown for many years.
Peter says: ‘Cycling allows me to leave my dementia at home for just a while and makes me feel like the person I used to be, rather than the person I’ve become. I know this Cycle Challenge is one event I won’t ever forget.’
