Dementia Help charity cycle challenge

Dementia Help

A man from Suffolk, who was diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s at the age of 50, is taking his passion for cycling to a new level in June, by leading a team to pedal 330 miles across the country in 6 days for Dementia Help to raise funds for YoungDementia UK.

Peter Berry is a co-director of Dementia Help, a free online resource designed to support the growing number of dementia carers across the country, and he will be cycling alongside the founder and Managing Director of Dementia Help, Christina Neal, and its Website Editor, Dave Collison.

The challenge starts on Monday 25 June 2018 in Wales and ends on Saturday 30 June 2018 in Suffolk.
