Team story

[p]Peter Berry from Dementia Help will be cycling 330 miles from Aberystwyth to Aldeburgh in June to raise vital funds for YoungDementia UK. Peter, aged 53, was diagnosed with early Alzheimer's three years ago and is determined to show that a person with dementia can still achieve goals. Joining him on the ride will be keen cyclist Jan Dodd, from Maidstone. Jan's husband Dave has Alzheimer's disease so she fully appreciates the demands of being a carer. The challenge will take place over six days, starting on Monday 25th June and finishing on Saturday 30th June, covering an average of 44 miles per day. Jon Bray, owner of cycling retailer Sax Velo, will join the challenge on the last few days. Young onset dementia affects over 40,000 people in the UK (people under the age of 65) who are generally of working age and still have financial responsibilities and families to support. YoungDementia UK provides vital support to those living with young onset dementia.[/p][p]Peter had to give up his business after the condition made it impossible for him to run the well-established family company he took over from his father many years ago. His positive outlook inspires many and he is regularly invited to speak at conferences. [/p][p]Thank you to our sponsors who have made this challenge possible: Christies Care, Sax Velo, Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home, Munchy Seeds, Monica Bradley Associates, uTalk, Harley Street Vein Clinic.
