Congratulations to Peter Berry and Jan Dodd who cycled from Wales to Suffolk in June (covering over 330 miles) to raise vital funds for YoungDementia UK. 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. At the time of writing, over £2500 has been raised online. We’ll keep you posted on the total amount raised for YoungDementia UK when we’ve received final donations.
We’d like to extend our special thanks to Jan Dodd, who stepped in at the last minute to join Peter on the Dementia Help Cycle Challenge. Jan is a carer for her husband, who has dementia and fully understands the challenges that carers face.
